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 appears on the EU’s roadmap for industrial support.

Following เกจวัดแรงดัน4บาร์ of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has further indicated that it will rely quite closely on trade to ship on the main challenges confronted 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 want to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is largely constructing on the potential of European trade 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 at all times assist the freedom and adaptability needed for firms to develop and compete globally.
The European expertise industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a very lengthy time thought-about the enhancement of their international competitiveness within the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy efficiency and ecolabel rules. In parallel, digitalisation has supplied elevated alternatives and introduced new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory stage (sharing of business information, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce international competitors, require that public authorities and trade in the EU work more and more 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 initial debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which will deliver together key policy makers from the three EU coverage establishments in management of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges nonetheless confronted, by these three key sectors of industry.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues

As the regulatory landscape across Europe, and indeed the entire world, turns into ever extra complicated, the burden on business solely increases. It therefore falls to sector particular commerce organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to determine and advise on these technical and policy issues most relevant 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 necessary subset of industry, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of the major issues when figuring out the core themes for the joint conference was to maintain up a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to focus on how, together with the importance for companies to address technical aspects impacting their day by day enterprise operations, they think about the positive function of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the periods could have a technical theme matching the most appropriate UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission along with technical experts from trade and/or research institutes, they’ll every be reflective of the present legislative terrain, as it relates to pumps and pumping methods 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)
