Affiliate Disclosure

Hey fellow impactful ninja ?

You may have noticed that Impactful Ninja is all about providing helpful information to make a positive impact on the world and society. And that we love to link back to where we found all the information for each of our posts.

  • Most of these links are informational-based for you to check out their primary sources with one click.

  • But some of these links are so-called "affiliate links" to products that we recommend.

Why do we add these product links?

First and foremost, because we believe that they add value to you. For example, when we wrote a post about the environmental impact of long showers, we came across an EPA recommendation to use WaterSense showerheads. So we linked to where you can find them. Or, for many of our posts, we also link to our favorite books on that topic so that you can get a much more holistic overview than one single blog post could provide.

And when there is an affiliate program for these products, we sign up for it. For example, as Amazon Associates, we earn from qualifying purchases.

What do these affiliate links mean for you?
  1. First, and most importantly, we still only recommend products that we believe add value for you.

  2. When you buy something through one of our affiliate links, we may earn a small commission - but at no additional costs to you.

  3. And when you buy something through a link that is not an affiliate link, we won’t receive any commission but we’ll still be happy to have helped you.

What do these affiliate links mean for us?
  1. When we find products that we believe add value to you and the seller has an affiliate program, we sign up for it.

  2. When you buy something through one of our affiliate links, we may earn a small commission (at no extra costs to you).

  3. And at this point in time, all money is reinvested in sharing the most helpful content with you. This includes all operating costs for running this site and the content creation itself.

What does this mean for me personally?

You may have noticed by the way Impactful Ninja is operated that money is not the driving factor behind it. It is a passion project of mine and I love to share helpful information with you to make a positive impact on the world and society. However, it's a project in that I invest a lot of time and also quite some money.

Eventually, my dream is to one day turn this passion project into my full-time job and provide even more helpful information. But that's still a long time to go.

Stay impactful,

Happy Friday 👋

Today I have one main story for you: we are looking into the final agreement of COP28!

I have to admit that I didn’t expect this outcome, based on the earlier drafts that were submitted…

That’s why I’m even happier to share more details about the final agreement with you!

🌍 COP28’s Landmark Agreement: A Step Toward Ending Fossil Fuel Dependence

1️⃣ The big picture: In a historic move at the COP28 climate summit, nearly 200 countries agreed to transition away from fossil fuels to mitigate the worst effects of climate change. The agreement, led by Denmark, Finland, and Panama, calls for a just, orderly, and equitable transition from fossil fuels, aligning with the goal of achieving net zero by 2050. This marks the first time a global climate agreement has explicitly addressed the need to move away from fossil fuels, despite not including a commitment to phase them out or down.

2️⃣ Why is this good news: This agreement represents a pivotal shift in global climate policy. It acknowledges the urgent need to reduce reliance on coal, oil, and gas to meet the 1.5C temperature goal set in the Paris Agreement. The deal emphasizes the importance of transitioning to renewable energy and improving energy efficiency. While the text includes compromises and lacks specific commitments on fossil fuel reduction, it sets a clear direction for future climate action and financial investments.

3️⃣ What’s next: The challenge now lies in translating this agreement into concrete actions at the national level. Countries will need to ramp up their efforts to cut emissions, with a focus on the energy sector, and invest in renewable energy and carbon capture technologies. The agreement also highlights the need for significant financial support and technology transfer to help developing countries in their transition.
