Sustainability and decarbonisation: how can the EU’s industrial policy support industry’s efforts?

Ahead of เกจวัดแรงดันsumo and Joint Conference with CEIR and Pneurop in Brussels this May, Europump president Vanni Vignoli appears at the EU’s roadmap for industrial help.
Vanni Vignoli, president of Europump.
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 heavily on industry to deliver 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, as nicely as 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 building blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not always help the liberty and flexibility needed for companies to develop and compete globally.
The European expertise industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a protracted 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 regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has offered elevated opportunities and introduced new challenges, including debates on the suitable regulatory level (sharing of business knowledge, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever extra fierce worldwide competition, require that public authorities and trade within the EU work increasingly more closely to design and deploy methods 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 can convey together 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 still faced, by these three key sectors of trade.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama across Europe, and certainly the whole world, turns into ever extra complicated, the burden on trade only will increase. It therefore falls to sector specific commerce organisations, such as Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to identify and advise on those technical and policy points most relevant to their respective sectors. In our explicit enviornment, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related gear – a huge and essential subset of industry, given the width and breadth of pump purposes.
Against this backdrop, one of the primary concerns when determining the core themes for the joint conference was to take care of a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to focus on how, along with the significance for companies to address technical elements impacting their every day business operations, they contemplate the constructive position of industry in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the classes could have a technical theme matching essentially the most appropriate UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission together with technical specialists from trade and/or analysis institutes, they will every be reflective of the present legislative terrain, because 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 supplies and substances of concern (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: Clean Water and Sanitation)
The regulatory and legislative landscape across Europe is changing into more and more advanced, and business, in all its guises, needs to be conscious and prepared for what is coming. By partaking with these trade organisations that symbolize your best interests, you probably can maintain abreast of all the compliance developments as they have an result on your corporation and the areas during which you use.
Europump’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Joint Conference will take place in Brussels on 9–11 May 2022 at the NH Collection Grand Sablon, Rue Bodenbroek – Bodenbroekstraat, 2, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.
