Member Spotlight - July 2014 - Nicole Wilkinson, Senior Manager - Corporate Environmental at CVS Caremark

Why did you join NAEM?

I joined NAEM for the opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with other Environmental Professionals. NAEM has an impressive membership of EHS leaders from various sectors with extensive knowledge and experience.

What are currently working on?

I am developing and implementing environmental compliance programs to effectively manage our environmental obligations and support company strategies. Establishing metrics and reporting to drive continuous improvement of these programs.

What do you like about your job?

I enjoy having the opportunity to accomplish great things. I have a talented team and some exciting projects and look forward to what the future holds for us.

What is your biggest challenge in your current role?

I have always worked in the environmental field but now applying environmental regulations and requirements to the retail world is offering many new challenges. At times it is like a square peg in a round hole, but the success we make every day keeps me going.

What advice would you have for someone entering the field today?

Persistence and strong work ethic are important to being successful. Don’t be afraid to try new things and accept challenges. Environmental programs have to integrate into business processes and therefore it is important to understand those on the receiving end. Listening is just as important to speaking when it comes to being a successful communicator.

What are the three words your spouse/colleagues/best friends would use to describe you?

Driven, Passionate, Hardworking

What aspect to the natural world/environment impresses you the most? Why?

Resilience – despite our footprint this world continues to offer life and beauty that can take your breath away.

What do you like to do during your free time?

I love to downhill ski and snowboard with my daughters and husband in the winter and go to the beaches in the summer.

To Make the Most of an EHS & Sustainability Software Investment, Don’t Skimp on the Implementation

March 7, 2018

Software is a powerful tool for accelerating EHS & Sustainability performance, but even the best tool can fail if it’s not implemented well, according to a new NAEM report that was published today. At the heart of the findings in NAEM’s “Ready, Set, Implement: How to Successfully Deploy an EHS & Sustainability Software System” is that success—or failure— often comes down to how well the company mapped the system to its core processes, trained its users and sold the value to the organization.
