Green management combines the concepts of environmental management and human resources management in such a way as to develop "green" skills and motivate and ensure pro-ecological activation of employees - by placing sustainable development at the center of the organization's HR processes. The aim of the article is to present the concept of green management as an instrument of activation of the elderly. We conclude that it is necessary to maintain the awareness that work is an important factor affecting the activity of the elderly and determines their place in the social structure. The challenge is to create such employment conditions that employees of mature age (aged 60 and over) have a suitable job that would take into account their aspirations, skills, and health). It is necessary to conduct appropriate policies aimed at activating mature workers and reducing the level of unemployment among them by changing the pension system, as well as health care and granting social benefits, promoting flexible forms of employment, increasing the possibility of undertaking and continuing various activities, ensuring optimal working time and working conditions, implementation of innovative processes, counteracting discriminatory behavior, increasing employability and encouraging lifelong learning.
