Ahead of its Annual Meeting and Joint Conference with CEIR and Pneurop in Brussels this May, Europump president Vanni Vignoli seems at the EU’s roadmap for industrial assist.
Vanni Vignoli, president of Europump.
Following its announcements of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it is going to rely quite heavily on business to ship on the most important challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and world competitiveness, as properly as the want to overcome the disaster provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is essentially building on the potential of European business to design and produce the building blocks of the dual green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that doesn’t at all times support the liberty and suppleness wanted for firms to develop and compete globally.
The European technology industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a really lengthy 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 rules. In parallel, digitalisation has supplied increased alternatives and brought new challenges, including debates on the appropriate regulatory degree (sharing of business knowledge, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competitors, require that public authorities and business in the EU work more and more extra intently to design and deploy strategies that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This would be the subject of the initial debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which is able to bring collectively key coverage makers from the three EU policy institutions in command of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges nonetheless faced, by these three key sectors of business.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues

As the regulatory panorama throughout Europe, and indeed the whole world, becomes ever extra complicated, the burden on industry only increases. diaphragm seal falls to sector particular commerce organisations, similar to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to determine and advise on those technical and coverage points most related to their respective sectors. In our explicit enviornment, that relates, of course, 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 functions.
Against this backdrop, one of many main issues when determining the core themes for the joint conference was to hold up 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 significance for companies to handle technical aspects impacting their day by day enterprise operations, they consider the optimistic position of business 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 along with technical consultants from industry and/or analysis institutes, they may each be reflective of the current legislative terrain, as it relates to pumps and pumping systems 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)
