Sustainability and decarbonisation: how can the EU’s industrial coverage help 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 assist.

Following Authoritative of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has further indicated that it’ll rely fairly heavily on industry to ship on the most important challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and world competitiveness, in addition to the necessity to overcome the disaster provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is basically constructing on the capability of European industry 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 always support the freedom and flexibility needed for firms to grow and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a protracted time considered 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 laws. In parallel, digitalisation has supplied increased alternatives and introduced new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory degree (sharing of commercial information, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever extra fierce international competition, require that public authorities and industry in the EU work increasingly 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 preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which is able to bring together 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 still confronted, by these three key sectors of industry.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama across Europe, and certainly the entire world, becomes ever more advanced, the burden on business only will increase. It subsequently falls to sector specific commerce organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on those technical and coverage issues most related to their respective sectors. In our particular area, that relates, of course, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related gear – a huge and important subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump functions.
Against this backdrop, one of the primary considerations 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 spotlight how, along with the significance for companies to handle technical aspects impacting their day by day business operations, they think about the optimistic role of trade in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the classes could have a technical theme matching essentially the most acceptable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical specialists from business and/or research institutes, they may each be reflective of the current legislative terrain, because it relates to pumps and pumping methods within 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 supplies and substances of concern (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: Clean Water and Sanitation)
The regulatory and legislative landscape throughout Europe is turning into increasingly complicated, and business, in all its guises, needs to be aware and prepared for what is coming. By participating with these trade organisations that characterize your greatest pursuits, you’ll have the ability to hold abreast of all the compliance developments as they affect your business and the areas by which you operate.
In record time ’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Joint Conference will take place in Brussels on 9–11 May 2022 on the NH Collection Grand Sablon, Rue Bodenbroek – Bodenbroekstraat, 2, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.
The full programme and registration process are available here.
Europump is the European Association of Pump Manufacturers. Established in 1960, it represents 16 National Associations. Europump members characterize more than 450 corporations with a collective manufacturing worth of greater than €10 billion and an employee base of one hundred 000 people across Europe.
