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 looks at the EU’s roadmap for industrial support.
Vanni Vignoli, president of Europump.
Following its announcements of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it’s going to rely quite closely on business to ship on the major challenges confronted by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and global competitiveness, as properly as the need to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is largely constructing on the capability of European trade to design and produce the constructing blocks of the dual green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that doesn’t at all times help the freedom and adaptability wanted for companies to grow and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and particularly our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a protracted time thought of the enhancement of their world competitiveness throughout the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy effectivity and ecolabel rules. In parallel, digitalisation has provided increased alternatives and brought new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory level (sharing of business information, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competition, require that public authorities and business within the EU work increasingly extra carefully to design and deploy strategies that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will be the subject of the preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which is ready to convey collectively key coverage makers from the three EU coverage institutions in command of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges nonetheless confronted, by these three key sectors of trade.

As the regulatory landscape across Europe, and indeed the whole world, turns into ever extra complex, the burden on business solely increases. It therefore falls to sector specific trade organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to determine and advise on those technical and policy issues most relevant to their respective sectors. In our specific arena, that relates, of course, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated gear – an enormous and important subset of industry, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of many major considerations when figuring out the core themes for the joint convention was to maintain up a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to spotlight how, along with the significance for companies to deal with technical aspects impacting their day by day enterprise operations, they think about the constructive role of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the periods may have a technical theme matching probably the most acceptable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical consultants from trade and/or research institutes, they may every be reflective of the current legislative terrain, because it pertains to pumps and pumping techniques 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 landscape throughout Europe is changing into increasingly complicated, and industry, in all its guises, must be conscious and prepared for what’s coming. By participating with these commerce organisations that characterize your greatest pursuits, you possibly can keep abreast of all of the compliance developments as they affect your small 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.
