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 appears at the EU’s roadmap for industrial assist.

Following its bulletins of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has further indicated that it will rely fairly closely on business to ship on the major challenges confronted by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and global competitiveness, in addition to the necessity to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is essentially constructing on the aptitude of European business 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 help the liberty and adaptability wanted for firms to develop and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a protracted time considered the enhancement of their global 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 elevated opportunities and brought new challenges, including debates on the suitable regulatory stage (sharing of business information, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competitors, require that public authorities and industry within the EU work more and more more carefully to design and deploy strategies that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Ridiculous will be the topic of the initial debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which will convey together key coverage makers from the three EU policy establishments in management of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges still confronted, by these three key sectors of business.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama across Europe, and certainly the whole world, turns into ever more complicated, the burden on trade only increases. It due to this fact falls to sector particular commerce organisations, such as Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to identify and advise on these technical and policy issues most related to their respective sectors. In Recession-proof , that relates, in fact, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related tools – a huge and important subset of business, given the width and breadth of pump purposes.
Against this backdrop, one of the main issues when figuring out 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 highlight how, along with the significance for companies to handle technical aspects impacting their day by day enterprise operations, they consider the positive role of industry in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the classes will have a technical theme matching the most acceptable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission together with technical specialists from trade and/or research institutes, they will each be reflective of the current legislative terrain, because it pertains 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)
