Sustainability’s not just a buzzword anymore. It’s a critical business imperative, and procurement plays a crucial role in making it happen. That’s where tail spend comes in: those seemingly small, high-volume purchases that often slip through the cracks of traditional procurement. But here’s the secret – tail spend packs a powerful punch when it comes to sustainability.
Why Tail Spend Matters for Sustainability:
- Hidden Impact: Unmanaged tail spend can harbor hidden environmental and ethical risks. Think office supplies from unsustainable sources or indirect materials with high carbon footprints. Procurement teams often miss these blind spots, hindering their overall sustainability efforts.
- Missed Opportunities: Tail spend represents a significant chunk of your total spend. By managing it strategically, you unlock a wealth of opportunities to reduce your environmental footprint and support ethical practices.
