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 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’ll rely fairly heavily on industry to ship on the main challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and international 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 building on the aptitude of European industry to design and produce the constructing blocks of the dual green and digital transition. At the same time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not always help the freedom and suppleness needed for corporations to grow and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for an extended time thought of the enhancement of their international competitiveness throughout the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of power effectivity and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has provided elevated alternatives and introduced new challenges, including debates on the suitable regulatory level (sharing of commercial data, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever extra fierce international competitors, require that public authorities and trade 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 subject of the initial debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which will deliver together key coverage makers from the three EU policy establishments in command of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges nonetheless faced, by these three key sectors of business.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory landscape across Europe, and indeed the whole world, becomes ever extra complex, the burden on business only increases. เครื่องมือที่ใช้วัดความดันเลือด falls to sector specific commerce organisations, such as Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on those technical and policy points most relevant to their respective sectors. In our explicit area, that relates, of course, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated gear – a huge and important subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of many main 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, along with the significance for corporations to address technical features impacting their every day business operations, they contemplate the positive role of industry in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the classes may have a technical theme matching the most acceptable UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission together with technical experts from trade and/or analysis institutes, they’ll every be reflective of the current legislative terrain, as it relates 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 panorama throughout Europe is changing into more and more complex, and industry, in all its guises, must be aware and prepared for what is coming. By partaking with those commerce organisations that represent your greatest interests, you 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.
