This survey provides invaluable insights into "green" outsourcing vendors. Who are the Top 50 Green Outsourcers? Who are the Top Green Technology Outsourcing Vendors by country? Who are the Top Green Consultants, Outsourcing Advisors and LEED Firms?
Here are some interesting insights from the Black Book 2009 Green (or Sustainability)
- Indian IT outsourcing vendors are implementing measurable green alternatives by choice not as a window dressing to get business
- Both US and Indian outsourcing vendors are adding new revenue streams through sustainability options.
- Customers do not expect to pay more for green IT
- Admittedly, the drive to green technology is being driven by energy costs rather than "ecological altruism"
- 92% of respondents believe vendors who have initiated green options will have mature, desirable products and services by 2010 – 2011
- 87% of respondents are taking a “mostly passive” approach to monitoring vendors
