    Yes. The 2010 Vancouver Olympics strove to be as eco-friendly as possible, and touted quite widely their intent to be carbon-neutral, or nearly carbon-neutral. Coca-Cola and the Royal Bank of Canada teamed up to present the torch relay, and they partnered with an organization called Offsetters, the official provider of carbon offsets for the Games, to make the process carbon-neutral. The Olympic torch was carried 45,000 km across Canada before being presented at the opening of the Games, and, at least according to Coca-Cola and RBC, every bit of the emissions associated with that journey were offset, as well as all of their operations at the Games. Spectators and other participants of the Games were also encouraged to voluntarily offset their own carbon emissions, such as by purchasing carbon credits.
