The founder and managing director, Sabine Hoenicke, has already exemplified the principles of business ethics through her studies of Business Administration. Over time, society has become increasingly aware of the grievances that shadow globalization. Global companies are being held accountable, are still in the public eye, and they continue to look for a solution. Through her work with Sumations GmbH, Sabine Hoenicke brings new solutions to light for these critical problems.


She worked to develop the German AVE Sector Model, which was later renamed the European BSCI Standard. She has taken numerous companies and led them to individual holistic solutions in order for them to take responsibility for their corporation’s actions.

Throughout this time, she gained experience in more than 17 countries and supported countless production sites in the optimization of production conditions, thus improving the quality of at least 10,000 workers’ lives.


Several thousands of people, including employers, employees, and students have attended trainings, seminars, and lectures with Sumations employees in order to understand what sustainable action really means and how to integrate it into their business model.
