The Low Impact Manifesto
• 1. Does not load any images before they are actively requested by the user.
• 2. Minimises the power consumption on the users device.
• 3. Adapts to re
fl
ect the amount of renewable energy it’s currently running on.
• 4. Informs the user of the impact of their browsing behavior.
• 5. Does not make use of videos.
• 6. Stores data locally on the user’s device to minimise data transfer.
• 7. Compresses all data to the greatest extent possible.
• 8. Loads only the most crucial programming scripts, frameworks and cookies.
• 9. Limits the amount of light emitted by the screen.
• 10. Optimises and limits the use of custom fonts.
