Sustainability and decarbonisation: how can the EU’s industrial coverage help industry’s efforts?

Ahead of its Annual Meeting and Joint Conference with CEIR and Pneurop in Brussels this May, Europump president Vanni Vignoli seems on the EU’s roadmap for industrial support.

Following its announcements of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it’ll rely fairly closely on industry to ship on the major challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and international competitiveness, as well as the necessity to overcome the disaster provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is basically building on the potential of European business to design and produce the building blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not all the time help the liberty and flexibility needed for corporations to grow and compete globally.
The European technology industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a protracted time thought of the enhancement of their global competitiveness within the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy efficiency and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has offered increased alternatives and brought new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory level (sharing of commercial knowledge, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever extra fierce international competitors, require that public authorities and trade in the EU work more and more extra intently to design and deploy methods that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will be the subject of the initial debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which will bring together key coverage makers from the three EU policy establishments in management of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges still confronted, by these three key sectors of trade.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama across Europe, and indeed the whole world, turns into ever more complicated, the burden on industry only will increase. It therefore falls to sector particular commerce organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to identify and advise on these technical and coverage points most relevant to their respective sectors. In our particular area, that relates, in fact, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related tools – a huge and important subset of business, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of the primary issues when determining the core themes for the joint convention was to take care of a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within Unique , the three associations intend to focus on how, together with the importance for firms to deal with technical features impacting their day by day business operations, they consider the positive position of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the sessions may have a technical theme matching essentially the most applicable UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission together with technical experts from industry and/or analysis institutes, they will each be reflective of the present legislative terrain, as it pertains to pumps and pumping techniques within the following key areas:
