Proclaimed as hard-to-outsource, green technology jobs are nonetheless being created faster in India than America, according to the 2009 Green Outsourcing Report, an annual industry study by Brown-Wilson Group, a Tampa, Florida-based research organization.

US businesses focused on recession survival strategies have offshored more than 22,000 new green tech jobs as a direct result of seeking stabilized energy and labor costs through outsourcing their technology.

"The Indian market is creating clean tech jobs offshore because private entrepreneurs, strategic corporate leaders and venture capitalists are eager to profit from winning investments, " said Scott Wilson, Partner of Brown-Wilson Group and co-author, The Black Book of Outsourcing (Wiley Publishers), "and India's green-ready solutions are increasingly demanded and profitable."

India's green job growth is being created by market savvy offshore outsourcers, also reeling from the global recession. Outsourcers are capturing business development opportunities ahead of the pending upturn, by implementing clean, efficient technology solutions that reduce the costs of compliance with incoming regulations.

Surprisingly, just a year ago, India was remarked to be among the world's highest polluting nations and suffering from offshore aversion and reverse outsourcing.

"The innovation and market adaptation of agile Indian vendors keeps the brand competitive in technology outsourcing regardless of the challenge," said Wilson. India's new green jobs include higher dollar engineers, strategic business management and support technicians charged with designing innovative environmental-friendly solutions, as opposed to the lower wage installation and construction jobs associated with the American green stimulus.

"With limited power to penalize violators, self-regulation may have not worked in India had it not been a business development incentive to develop green solutions", added Wilson.

Outsourcing suppliers who embrace green initiatives and efficiency are gaining the competitive advantage ahead of the forecasted carbon economy and mitigate clients' reputational risks associated with the energy excesses and pollution.

"A bold group of high profile offshore outsourcers are changing the regard for environmental impact. Eco-action in India is leading to more economical, end-to-end clean technology solutions for US enterprise clients," concludes Wilson.

The comprehensive annual Green Outsourcing survey of over 4,000 global industry users also tracks the most innovative vendors as nominated from client experiences and satisfaction. The top US Green Outsourcing Vendors of 2009 include: Xerox, Accenture, CSC, Capgemini, Oracle, HP, Aramark, Perot and SITEL. Top nominated Indian Outsourcers include: IBM, HCL, Patni, WNS, Wipro, Mastech and TechMahindra.

Among innovative green technology outsourcing solutions, Indian-based Patni achieved the highest client accolades overall. Capgemini leads in both European and Australian markets, and CSC took top honors among American tech outsourcers.

Pricewaterhouse Coopers was honored by client experience for independent green tech outsourcing advisements.

The annual Green Outsourcing study reports the trends and client experiences in the low-carbon economy of high tech and business process outsourcers. The entire gratis PDF report of market polling results can be downloaded at http://theblackbookofoutsourcing.com/resourceslinks.htm
