20 Jun 2024

National, 20th June’24:: Tata Power, one of India's largest integrated power companies, is proud to announce that its sustainability champion and ace mountaineer, Baljeet Kaur has successfully summited Mt. Everest (8850mts) taking the company's message of 'Sustainable is Attainable' to the highest peak in the world.

The expedition began with a ceremonial flag off in Mumbai by Tata Power CEO&MD, Dr Praveer Sinha, in April. Following this, Baljeet underwent gruelling training in the Ladakh Zanskar Himalayan ranges where she climbed Mt Ut Ladakh Kangri (6070mts). After successfully completing her month-long practice in India, she set off for Kathmandu, Nepal. Baljeet first climbed Mt. Labuche East (6119mts) in the Nepalese Khumbu region known for its technical difficulties, followed by the final climb to summit Mt. Everest, bearing Tata Power's message of sustainable lifestyle and environmental stewardship.

Baljeet has a stellar record in the sport and has various accolades to her name. In 2023, she earned the prestigious Gold Medal for Excellent Performance in Mountaineering from the Indian Mountaineering Foundation. Baljeet holds several notable firsts, such as being the first Indian to climb seven peaks surpassing 8000 meters. She stands as the first Indian woman to ascend Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse and Mount Manaslu, which she climbed without oxygen, showcasing courage, unwavering determination, and resilience.

Baljeet's second ascent of Mt. Everest this time was driven by her advocacy for clean and green living and co-existence with nature.

Congratulating Baljeet, Dr Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power said, "We are immensely proud of Baljeet for safely and successfully taking the message of 'Sustainable is Attainable' to Mt. Everest. As the power sector advances to achieve a green energy transition, Baljeet's #PowerofCourage and spirit of resilience are qualities that each individual can embody to commit to a greener future."

I extend my gratitude to my Tata Power family of 23000 well-wishers for their constant support and encouragement."
