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 seems on the EU’s roadmap for industrial support.

Following its bulletins of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it will rely quite closely on industry to ship on the most important challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and international competitiveness, as nicely as the necessity to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is essentially constructing on the capability of European business to design and produce the building blocks of the dual green and digital transition. At the same time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not at all times assist the liberty and adaptability wanted for corporations to develop and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for an extended time thought-about 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 laws. In parallel, digitalisation has provided increased alternatives and introduced new challenges, including debates on the appropriate regulatory level (sharing of industrial data, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
Quadruple , amidst ever more fierce worldwide competition, require that public authorities and trade within the EU work increasingly extra carefully 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 is able to deliver collectively key coverage makers from the three EU policy establishments in command of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges nonetheless faced, by these three key sectors of trade.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama across Europe, and indeed the entire world, becomes ever extra complex, the burden on business only will increase. It therefore falls to sector specific commerce organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to identify and advise on those technical and policy points most related to their respective sectors. In our explicit 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 primary issues when figuring out the core themes for the joint conference was to maintain 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 significance for firms to deal with technical elements impacting their daily business operations, they think about the constructive role of trade in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the periods will have a technical theme matching essentially the most acceptable UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission along with technical specialists from trade and/or research institutes, they will every be reflective of the present legislative terrain, because it pertains to pumps and pumping systems within the following key areas:
