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

Ahead of its Annual Meeting and Joint Conference with CEIR and Pneurop in Brussels this May, Europump president Vanni Vignoli appears 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 further indicated that it’ll rely quite heavily on industry to deliver 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, in addition to the need to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is basically building on the aptitude of European industry to design and produce the constructing blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that doesn’t all the time help the freedom and adaptability wanted for companies to develop and compete globally.
The European expertise industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a very lengthy time thought of the enhancement of their global competitiveness inside the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of power efficiency and ecolabel laws. In parallel, digitalisation has offered elevated opportunities and brought new challenges, together with debates on the appropriate regulatory degree (sharing of industrial data, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever extra fierce international competitors, require that public authorities and trade in the EU work increasingly extra intently to design and deploy methods that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This would be the topic of the initial debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which can bring collectively key policy makers from the three EU policy establishments in command of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges still confronted, by these three key sectors of industry.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama throughout Europe, and indeed the whole world, turns into ever extra complicated, the burden on industry solely increases. It therefore falls to sector specific trade organisations, such as Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to determine and advise on these technical and policy issues most related to their respective sectors. In our particular area, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated tools – an enormous and essential subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump purposes.
Against this backdrop, one of the major considerations when determining the core themes for the joint convention was to keep up a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to spotlight how, together with the significance for companies to handle technical features impacting their every day enterprise operations, they contemplate the constructive function of industry in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the classes will have a technical theme matching the most appropriate UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical consultants from industry and/or research institutes, they may every be reflective of the present legislative terrain, because it relates to pumps and pumping methods within the following key areas:
Circular Economy & Eco-design (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 12: Responsible Consumption and Production)
Industry’s Digital Transformation and Innovation (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure)
The restriction of use of supplies and substances of concern (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: Clean Water and Sanitation)
The regulatory and legislative landscape across Europe is changing into increasingly complex, and business, in all its guises, needs to be aware and prepared for what’s coming. By engaging with these commerce organisations that symbolize your finest interests, you can keep abreast of all the compliance developments as they affect your business and the areas by which you use.
Europump’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Joint Conference will happen in Brussels on 9–11 May 2022 on the NH Collection Grand Sablon, Rue Bodenbroek – Bodenbroekstraat, 2, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.
