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 at 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 is going to rely quite closely on industry to ship on the main challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and world competitiveness, in addition to the want 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 potential of European business 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 all the time support the freedom and suppleness wanted for firms to develop and compete globally.
The European technology industries, and particularly our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for an extended time considered the enhancement of their international competitiveness inside the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy effectivity and ecolabel laws. In parallel, digitalisation has offered elevated opportunities and brought new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory degree (sharing of industrial knowledge, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competitors, require that public authorities and industry in the EU work more and more more closely 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 preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which will bring collectively key policy makers from the three EU policy establishments in cost of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges nonetheless faced, by these three key sectors of industry.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama across Europe, and indeed the whole world, turns into ever more advanced, the burden on business solely will increase. It due to this fact falls to sector particular commerce organisations, similar to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to identify and advise on these technical and coverage points most related to their respective sectors. In our particular enviornment, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated equipment – an enormous and important subset of business, given the width and breadth of pump functions.
Against Mold , one of many major issues when determining the core themes for the joint convention was to maintain 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 importance for companies to deal with technical features impacting their daily enterprise operations, they consider the optimistic position of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the sessions will have a technical theme matching probably the most applicable UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission together with technical specialists from industry and/or research institutes, they may each be reflective of the present legislative terrain, as it pertains to pumps and pumping methods in the following key areas:
