Doing Good Things with the Cloud - Christian Bonzelet

Welcome to Public Cloud for Public Good, a bi-weekly newsletter and podcast focused on making the world a better place. Whether that’s making peoples lives better, building services in the public & third sectors or thinking about coding more sustainably. This podcast is hosted by Aaron Booth, a Cloud Sustainability Consultant based in the UK.

This week Aaron is joined by Christian Bonzelet, AWS Solution Architect for the Bundesliga, the top division of professional football in Germany. Aaron and Christian chat about the good that we can do through the use of cloud services. Christian has a great example of this, something that he was able to do to help his community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Christian also introduces us to his own serverless cost optimisation bot named Bill who is on a mission to reduce bills. You can reach out to Christian on LinkedIn:

Christian’s chosen organisation for our £500 donation is Food For Future, an organisation in Cologne that collect food just before it is wasted and distribute it to those who can’t afford it. 

The business who we have chosen to shine a light on for this episode is Ecologi. Ecologi was created so people like you can actually take on the climate crisis. They support a range of carbon reduction projects that are certified at the very highest level. There are enough climate solutions that are out there right now, that if we supported them, it’d undo 30 years of carbon damage by avoiding 1,500 billion tonnes of CO2.
