Prince Charles, 72, is passionate about protecting the environment and was one of the first public figures to promote eco-conscious practices. Earlier this year the future king launched his Terra Carta initiative to encourage global companies to adopt greener practices.
At the time of the Terra Carta launched, Clarence House described the initiative as follows: “Terra Carta – an ‘Earth Charter’ that puts sustainability at the heart of the private sector.
“The Sustainable Markets Initiative was launched by HRH in January 2020 and aims to support communities, businesses, investors and consumers to take the urgent and necessary steps required to transition to more sustainable practices.”
Speaking about the project Prince Charles previously said: “Today, I am making an urgent appeal to leaders, from all sectors and from around the world, to join us in this endeavour, and to give their support to this ‘Terra Carta’ – to bring prosperity into harmony with Nature, People and Planet over the coming decade.
“I can only encourage, in particular, those in industry and finance to provide practical leadership to this common project, as only they are able to mobilize the innovation, scale and resources that are required to transform our global economy.”
But while the royal may be dedicated to saving the planet he is also the most-travelled member of The Firm, according to a new study.
Private jet company Stratos Jets analysed the Royal Family’s financial travel reports from the last five years to find out which family members have accrued the most air miles while travelling for official business.
From 2015 to 2020 Prince Charles was found to have made 25 trips, racking up an extraordinary 120,213 air miles in the process.
The study found the cost of Charles’s trips abroad amounted to a staggering £2,468,501.
In response to the study, President of Stratos Jet Charters Joel Thomas said: “While it may always seem like there is a member of the Royal family on international business, it has been fascinating to take a dive into the travel reports and find out just how many air miles one of the world’s most famous families have racked up in the last five years.
“At Stratos Jets, the past 12 months have definitely been strange for many of our customers, with travel at a standstill and borders closed.
“It will be interesting to see how the royals’ travel itinerary looks when their next report is released for March 2020 – March 2021, and whether they continue to globe trot!”
