The duty of care means the obligation for people to behave prudently towards other people and the environment. Are we fulfilling this? The exhibitors ask questions and give us answers. A critical exhibition from a sustainable point of view.

For the human sphere: quote from the Gabler Wirtschaftslexikon
Obligation to protect the interests of others, which is often based on law or legal transactions.
1. Employer’s duty of care: This includes all precautions to protect the life and health of his employees in the regulation of his business operations, eg maintenance of business premises and accident prevention.
See also duty of care (of the employer), occupational health and safety .
2. Duty of care of the commercial agent, the commercial broker etc.: due diligence of a prudent businessman (§§ 86 III, 347 I HGB). In individual cases, it depends on how a prudent and conscientious businessman in the same line of business would have acted.
3. Duty of care in a stock corporation: The members of the board of directors and the supervisory board must exercise the care of a prudent and conscientious manager; in the event of a dispute, they must provide proof of this, otherwise they are obliged to pay damages (Sections 93, 116 AktG).
When do we also apply this care to the environment?
