Hurrah! This web page is cleaner than  87% of web pages tested

So, it seems that this website does pretty well from an energy usage point of view - a good sign for an essentially "out of the box" Drupal 9 site. The Drupal community working on the new Olivero theme should be proud of themselves.

I'm a little wary of the whole concept of an automated system to try and guess at the actual "carbon cost" of a website – yes there are some assumptions that can be made but the devil is certainly in the detail. For example, the "how to make your website more efficient" talks about not using a CMS for your site but that rather assumes a lot about how a CMS-based site is hosted these days. They don't exist as real servers sat there chugging away, awaiting their moment of glory any more, you know...

The ultimate irony being, of course, this very website is running on a CMS and comes out very well.
