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 at the EU’s roadmap for industrial help.

Following its bulletins of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has further indicated that it’ll rely fairly closely on trade to deliver on the main challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and global competitiveness, in addition to the necessity to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is largely building on the potential of European business to design and produce the constructing blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At the same time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not all the time support the liberty and suppleness needed for companies to develop and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a long time thought-about the enhancement of their world competitiveness within the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy effectivity and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has supplied elevated opportunities and brought new challenges, including debates on the appropriate regulatory degree (sharing of business data, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce international competition, require that public authorities and industry in the EU work increasingly more intently to design and deploy methods that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Feast will be the subject of the preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which can convey collectively key coverage makers from the three EU policy establishments in charge of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges nonetheless confronted, by these three key sectors of trade.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory landscape across Europe, and indeed the whole world, turns into ever more advanced, the burden on trade solely increases. It due to this fact falls to sector specific commerce organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to identify and advise on those technical and coverage points most relevant to their respective sectors. In our specific area, that relates, in fact, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related gear – an enormous and important subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of the major concerns when figuring out the core themes for the joint conference was to keep up a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to highlight how, along with the significance for corporations to address technical aspects impacting their daily business operations, they contemplate the positive function of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the periods may have a technical theme matching probably the most appropriate UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical specialists from business and/or research institutes, they will each be reflective of the present legislative terrain, as 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)
