For the Summit partners, the energy impact of reading a page on a mobile device varies greatly with a ratio of 1 to 6 between all the websites. The actions are to be adapted according to the websites but the main findings are in particular sites that are too greedy and unsuitable for data, scripts, requests. Without mentioning the ecological impact, such websites shut out all users with a low tech device or a degraded network connection. Regarding the carbon impact, the most consuming home page of the panel is equivalent to an average car driving for 80 meters.
