LEED certification marks milestone in sustainability commitment for CVS

BY Antoinette Alexander

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Health has announced that the CVS/pharmacy store in West Haven, Conn., has been awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Platinum certification, making it the most energy efficient CVS/pharmacy store in the country.

This achievement marks the first CVS/pharmacy store to be certified with the U.S. Green Building Council’s highest distinction and is the company’s eighth LEED-certified building.
 
“CVS Health is proud to celebrate this model store, which allows us to pilot environmental innovations and uncover best practices we can apply to other facilities,” said Eileen Howard Boone, SVP corporate social responsibility and philanthropy at CVS Health. “This initiative aligns with our CSR platform, Prescription for a Better World, and supports our efforts to reduce our impacts on the environment.”
 
The LEED system, developed by the USGBC, is the most internationally recognized program for green building certification. The Platinum level distinguishes those buildings that are designed, constructed and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.
 
CVS/pharmacy’s West Haven store features:

  • Recycled materials used in building design;
  • Stormwater design to reduce runoff;
  • Landscaping that doesn’t require irrigation;
  • A solar photovoltaic system to improve energy efficiency;
  • High-efficiency lighting, HVAC and plumbing systems;
  • Day lighting technology; and
  • An electric car charging station, and more.

With these features, the West Haven store uses 40% less energy and 50% less water, compared with a traditional building of similar size. CVS/pharmacy plans to incorporate some of the elements from the West Haven store into future new stores.

Walgreens’ VP U.S. merchandising leaves company

BY Michael Johnsen

DEERFIELD, Ill. — Drug Store News has learned that Bryan Pugh, Walgreens VP U.S. merchandising, program development and execution, has left the company as of last week. 
 
Walgreens released the following statement regarding his departure: "Bryan has been a respected and committed executive of the company for the past six years, and we want to thank him for all he’s done to enable our front-end strategy during that time. As our business strategy has evolved, we all agreed it was the right time for Bryan to look for other opportunities. He is highly thought of by his colleagues at Walgreens, the supplier community and the entire industry, and we wish him all the best." 
 
Pugh had been named corporate VP of U.S. merchandising program development and execution in August of 2013. As Walgreens expanded transformational merchandise programs and executed joint merchandise initiatives with Alliance Boots across beauty, personal care, health and wellness, Pugh’s role helped bridge operations and merchandising functions and oversaw rollout of new merchandising initiatives to the field, including operating standards, cross-functional deployment and flagship rollout.

Earlier last year, Pugh assumed the merchandising reigns in the wake of Joe Magnacca's move to RadioShack. He came to Walgreens in 2009 from Tesco's Fresh and Easy USA where he was COO and SVP operations. He also has experience working in big-box retail and club.

 
When putting together an exclusive feature on Walgreens in 2012, Drug Store News had the opportunity to explore in-depth Pugh's thoughts on merchandising: "You’ve got to skate to where the puck is going, not to where it’s been,” he told Drug Store News.
