Are you interested in advice from leading corporate officers, at minimal cost, on how to replicate the business successes they have achieved in environmental, health and safety (EH&S) and energy management? Welcome to 3S Environmental and Energy Strategies!

3S provides advice and support for organizations formulating and implementing EH&S and energy strategies. Its three Principals have extensive, senior-level environmental executive and legal experience in major corporations, law firms and government. Each of them – Ken Strassner, Roger Strelow and Bud Smith – has served as the most senior EH&S official in major global companies – Ken at Kimberly-Clark, Roger at GE, Bechtel and Federal-Mogul (automotive components) and Bud at Union Carbide – and each has also held major energy management responsibilities. Roger served as a Presidentially-appointed Assistant Administrator of the US Environmental Protection Agency with responsibility for air, water and waste management, which included major energy activity. All three are also experienced in environmental, energy and related areas of law.

Overall, their industry sector expertise in EH&S:

  • Automotive
  • Chemicals and plastics
  • Petroleum
  • Electronics
  • Consumer products
  • Pulp and paper
  • Communication
  • Transportation
  • Pharmaceutical
  • General manufacturing
  • Electric utilities
  • Insurance
  • Financial services
  • Marine matters
  • Bankruptcy

The firm's Principals are highly skilled in:

  • EH&S and energy planning and identifying “green” business opportunities instead of just maintaining EH&S compliance
  • Mastering climate change and carbon controls
  • Planning relative to the steadily growing gap between demand for and supply of clean water
  • Seeking to make a company’s entire supply chain as green as feasible
  • Expanding EH&S management into achievement of “sustainability” 

If you’re faced with major issues such as these, Ken, Roger and Bud have a wealth of experience with which to help you accomplish your objectives quickly and cost-effectively.

Fixed price and incentive compensation arrangements are available as well as reasonable hourly rates.
