Prince Harry defends use of private jets after launching sustainable travel scheme

Prince Harry defends use of private jets after launching sustainable travel scheme”

Harry says it was a safety issue, and who are we to question that?

Speaking at the launch of an ambitious global project to encourage the tourism industry to become more sustainable, Harry said what is important is to "balance" out negative effects.

Elton ended: "I highly respect and applaud both Harry and Meghan's commitment to charity and I'm calling on the press to cease these relentless and untrue assassinations on their character that are spuriously crafted on an nearly daily basis".

Harry has defended his use of private jets.

Prince Harry does have sustainable travel bona fides outside of his royal title.

"I spend 99 percent of my life travelling the world by commercial". Occasionally, there needs to be an opportunity based on a unique circumstance to ensure my family are safe and it's genuinely as simple as that.

"I've certainly felt that - but I've learned that we cannot dismiss the idea of trying to do something, just because we can't do everything".

Harry and Markle took private jets to Nice and Ibiza in August, creating seven times the normal amount of carbon emissions on the flights, according to The Sun.

As befitting a nobleman, Travalyst has noble goals working to explore and promote solutions that help drive sustainable practices and consumer choices in various areas, including supporting local people, protecting wildlife, tackling climate change and environmental damage, and alleviating over-tourism. The Duke will next travel with his family to South Africa, where he and Duchess Meghan will visit Malawi, Botswana, and Angola.

"We are all responsible for our own individual impact, ' he told news agency AP, adding that 'we can all do better" when it comes to the environment.

Prince Harry said he always ensures his travel is "carbon neutral".

Last year, there were 1.4 billion worldwide trips and travel and tourism generated US$8.8 trillion (S$12.3 trillion) to the global economy, Buckingham Palace said while consumers were becoming keen to ensure their travel was more sustainable and had less impact on the environment. The new partnership is hoping to connect would-be world travelers with easy and transparent options to let them travel more sustainably.

Prince Harry previously said he and his wife will have no more than two children because of the concerns they have for the planet.

He said that the "scale of the conservation crisis feels overwhelming" and sometimes makes it hard to know what is the correct action.
