Exemplary eco-efficiency shown again on Mt. Everest
The UIAA Mountain Protection Commission has praised the efforts of the members of the Eco Everest Expedition 2009 for highlighting environmentally friendly practices in mountaineering.
For the second year in a row, the expedition – lead by Dawa Steven Sherpa – displayed eco-sensitive, cost-effective ways of climbing the mountain last month. The team’s aim was also to raise awareness of the threat global warming poses to the Himalayas.
