Sustainability and decarbonisation: how can the EU’s industrial policy assist 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 support.

Following its bulletins of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has further indicated that it’s going to rely fairly heavily on industry to deliver on the major challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and world competitiveness, as well as the necessity to overcome the disaster provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is largely building on the capability of European trade to design and produce the building blocks of the dual green and digital transition. At the same time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not all the time support the liberty and adaptability wanted for corporations to develop and compete globally.

The European technology industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a really long time thought of the enhancement of their world competitiveness inside the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy efficiency and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has provided elevated alternatives and brought new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory stage (sharing of business data, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).

These developments, amidst ever extra fierce international competitors, require that public authorities and trade within the EU work increasingly extra intently to design and deploy methods that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). pressure gauge will be the topic of the initial debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which will bring together key coverage makers from the three EU coverage institutions in control 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 landscape across Europe, and certainly the whole world, becomes ever extra complicated, the burden on trade solely will increase. It subsequently falls to sector specific commerce organisations, similar to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to identify and advise on those technical and policy issues most relevant to their respective sectors. In our particular arena, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related equipment – an enormous and essential 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 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 features impacting their every day business operations, they consider the optimistic function of trade in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the periods could have a technical theme matching probably the most appropriate UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical consultants from industry and/or analysis institutes, they may each be reflective of the current legislative terrain, because it relates 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 materials and substances of concern (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: Clean Water and Sanitation)

The regulatory and legislative panorama across Europe is changing into increasingly advanced, and industry, in all its guises, must be conscious and ready for what’s coming. By engaging with these trade organisations that symbolize your best interests, you can maintain abreast of all of the compliance developments as they have an effect on your corporation and the areas during which you use.

Europump’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Joint Conference will happen in Brussels on 9–11 May 2022 on the NH Collection Grand Sablon, Rue Bodenbroek – Bodenbroekstraat, 2, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.
