Prince Charles lobbied to alter climate change policy after his estate secretly invested £86,000 in an offshore firm that would benefit from a rule change, Paradise Papers reveal

Prince Charles lobbied to alter climate change policy after his estate secretly bought shares in an offshore company that would benefit from a rule change, the Paradise Papers have revealed.

It was claimed the Duchy of Cornwall invested $113,500 (£86,000) in an offshore carbon credits firm run by a close friend.

The prince made a series of speeches on the rules surrounding carbon credits following the Duchy of Cornwall’s purchase of shares in Sustainable Forestry Management (SFM).

The duchy almost tripled the value of its investment in just over a year.
