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 assist.

Following its announcements of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it’s going to rely quite closely on business to deliver on the major challenges confronted by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and international competitiveness, as properly as the need 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 aptitude of European business to design and produce the building blocks of the dual green and digital transition. At Manageable , the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that doesn’t all the time assist the liberty and suppleness wanted for corporations to grow and compete globally.
The European technology industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for an extended time thought of the enhancement of their world competitiveness within the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of vitality effectivity and ecolabel rules. In parallel, digitalisation has supplied increased opportunities and brought new challenges, including debates on the suitable regulatory stage (sharing of business knowledge, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
Elusive , amidst ever extra fierce worldwide competitors, require that public authorities and trade in 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 would be the topic of the preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which can bring together key policy makers from the three EU policy establishments in control of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges still confronted, by these three key sectors of business.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory landscape across Europe, and indeed the entire world, becomes ever extra complicated, the burden on business solely will increase. It therefore falls to sector specific trade 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 arena, that relates, of course, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated tools – an enormous and necessary subset of business, 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 convention 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 spotlight how, along with the importance for corporations to handle technical aspects impacting their every day enterprise operations, they consider the optimistic role of industry in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the periods may have a technical theme matching the most acceptable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical consultants from industry and/or research institutes, they may each be reflective of the present legislative terrain, as it pertains to pumps and pumping techniques in the following key areas:
