I propose that we have a group dedicated to FinOps and Sustainability (a.k.a. GreenOps). Optimizing cloud for cost and carbon is hugely important, especially with rapidly accelerating government regulation. My view is that it deserves first class citizenship as a group so that those of us driving thought leadership can share ideas and bring others along.
I favor combining these topics in a single group, because they are two sides of the same coin. Optimizing for either cost or greenhouse gas emissions directly impacts the other.
What does everyone think?

@mrichter Thank your for your suggestion. Let's hear from the others. In the meanwhile, I will check internally, what are the process to create a new group dedicated to FinOps and Sustainability.
If we end up creating the group, would you be interested in being one of the moderators?
I’d be happy to be one of th emoderators!
