We do not look at eco-design from the angle of digital sobriety
, synonymous with decline, but rather aim for the concept of digital efficiency
: "our tools must achieve their goal using as few resources as possible".
Since 2020, we have undertaken structural changes on the EDF.fr site, with the aim of making our pages consistent with this approach to reducing their carbon footprint.
This has been carried out in several stages and in accordance with different approaches:
- reducing the number of elements that make up the structure of our web pages;
- optimising fonts;
- reducing the number of steps to move from one point to another;
- optimising network queries;
- optimising the management of our CMS, the tool that distributes our pages;
This work has a positive impact on the time spent on our site, on the bandwidth used to browse, on server storage, and on its accessibility.
