Tata Power announces mountaineer Baljeet Kaur as sustainability champion
Baljeet will inspire Tata Power's workforce nationwide to forge a deeper connection with nature.
Tata Power, a leading integrated power company in India, has announced the addition of acclaimed mountaineer Baljeet Kaur to its renewables business as a sustainability champion. This strategic move aligns with Tata Power's dedication to supporting young talent in unconventional fields and fostering a commitment to environmental responsibility.
In the challenging realm of mountaineering, 27-year-old Baljeet Kaur has distinguished herself with exceptional achievements. In 2023, she received the prestigious Gold Medal for Excellent Performance in Mountaineering from the Indian Mountaineering Foundation. Notably, Baljeet is the first Indian woman to conquer peaks exceeding 8,000 meters, including Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, and Mount Manaslu without oxygen—an outstanding display of courage, determination, and resilience.
Hailing from the hills of Himachal Pradesh, Baljeet, who considers the mountains her "first love," brings a profound understanding of nature and sustainable living. As Tata Power's sustainability champion, she will actively contribute to the 'Sustainable is Attainable' movement, advocating for clean energy solutions and encouraging a sustainable lifestyle.
Baljeet's role extends beyond her mountaineering feats; she will inspire Tata Power's workforce nationwide to forge a deeper connection with nature. Her involvement aims to amplify the company's environmental care and community development initiatives.
Dr Praveer Sinha, CEO and MD, Tata Power, speaking on the announcement said, "I am delighted to welcome Baljeet to the Tata Power family. With her spirit of resilience, agility, care for the environment, and focus on safety, she truly symbolizes the ethos of Tata Power. Her onboarding is a testament to Tata Power's dedication to championing women in sports and nurturing emerging talent in the country. With her #Powerofcourage, I'm sure she will be a role model for the youth of the nation."
"I am excited to be a part of the Tata Power team and promote the cause of sustainable living. I am thrilled to have a platform like this, which is championing sustainability and supporting young talent in diverse fields across the country. With this support, I look forward to making meaningful contributions to both sustainability and the empowerment of women in mountaineering." said Baljeet Kaur.
