Carbon emissions are rapidly posing a more urgent threat to the planet. This is an issue that cannot be tackled by one group alone. Several companies across different industrial sectors are taking steps to practice corporate sustainability in regards to their direct and supply chain carbon emissions through reduction, offsets, and removal. This paper explores the steps taken by four role model companies, along with multiple progressive companies within four chosen sectors. The breakdown of their carbon footprints was analyzed and their different strategies were compared and contrasted. These companies have created individual goals for environmental sustainability; some have had success or show promise, prompting others to follow, while some are unrealistic or unsupported by true action.
