In a survey by Accenture, 60% of executives said that their customers are demanding more sustainable products and services. Therefore, outsourcing providers will need to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and CSR by adopting environmentally friendly practices, supporting local communities, and ensuring ethical labor standards.

Hybrid outsourcing models that combine the benefits of onshore, nearshore, and offshore outsourcing are becoming increasingly popular.
