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

Ahead of its Annual Meeting and Joint Conference with CEIR and Pneurop in Brussels this May, Europump president Vanni Vignoli looks at the EU’s roadmap for industrial help.
Vanni Vignoli, president of Europump.
Following its bulletins of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it’s going to rely fairly heavily on industry to deliver on the most important challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and world competitiveness, in addition to the necessity to overcome the disaster provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is basically constructing 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 always help the freedom and suppleness needed for companies to develop and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and particularly our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a really lengthy time thought of the enhancement of their global competitiveness within the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of power efficiency and ecolabel rules. In parallel, digitalisation has offered increased opportunities and introduced new challenges, including debates on the appropriate regulatory level (sharing of commercial data, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce international competition, require that public authorities and industry within the EU work more and more extra closely to design and deploy strategies that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will be the topic of the preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which can convey together key policy makers from the three EU coverage establishments in control 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 landscape throughout Europe, and certainly the whole world, becomes ever more advanced, the burden on business only will increase. It due to this fact falls to sector specific commerce organisations, similar to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to determine and advise on those technical and coverage issues most related to their respective sectors. In our particular arena, that relates, in fact, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related tools – a huge and important subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of many primary issues when figuring out the core themes for the joint conference was to take care of a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to highlight how, together with the importance for companies to address technical features impacting their every day enterprise operations, they consider the positive function of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the periods will have a technical theme matching probably the most applicable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical consultants from business and/or research institutes, they may every be reflective of the present legislative terrain, as it pertains to pumps and pumping systems in 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 materials and substances of concern (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: Clean Water and Sanitation)
The regulatory and legislative panorama across Europe is becoming more and more complicated, and industry, in all its guises, must be aware and prepared for what’s coming. By partaking with those commerce organisations that symbolize your best pursuits, you possibly can maintain abreast of all the compliance developments as they affect your corporation and the areas in which you operate.
Europump’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Joint Conference will happen in Brussels on 9–11 May 2022 at the NH Collection Grand Sablon, Rue Bodenbroek – Bodenbroekstraat, 2, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.
