If the bumper crop of environmental awards Averitt Express harvests every year eventually becomes a sustainability issue of its own, CEO Gary Sasser will know what to do. Sasser was 21 in 1971 when he began building his just-bought company into an international provider of freight transportation and diverse supply chain management. In 2004, Sasser began remaking Averitt into an environmental steward. The company’s gone on to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide and particulates by more than 50 percent and carbon dioxide by 27.5 percent while continuing its success in 143 locations in the U.S. and around the world.
