Top green outsourcers

The annual research into outsourcing from the Brown-Wilson Group/Black Book Research has just been published. The research slices and dices the industry in various ways to produce a number of research reports, but one aspect is an analysis and rankings of the top 50 green outsourcing vendors.

The rankings are based on survey responses from vendors (around six areas of operational sustainability:

- The Black Book's own sustainability metrics, covering environmental protection, social improvements and
economic growth.

- UN Global Compact: Social and economic principles.

- UN Global Compact: Environmental principles.

- ISO 14000 environmental management standards.

- The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System.

- The Green Sigma consulting offering which is based on the Lean Six Sigma efficiency criteria.

Anyway, the top twenty from the analysis were:

Xerox
Accenture
CSC
Capgemini
IBM Global
Oracle
HCL
Patni
WNS Global
Hewlett Packard/EDS
Aramark
Perot Systems
Logica
Wipro
SITEL
Mastech
Oce Business Services
SAP
CIBER
SAIC

I have some reservations about the rankings (for instance, Capgemini has a very country-based approach so where does the response refer to?) but there's a lot more detail and analysis in the report, which is available here and worth a look.
