Sustainability and decarbonisation: how can the EU’s industrial policy 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 its bulletins of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has further indicated that it is going to rely quite closely on trade to ship on the most important challenges confronted by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and global competitiveness, as well as the necessity to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is basically building 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 does not at all times support the liberty and adaptability needed for companies to grow and compete globally.

The European expertise industries, and particularly our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a long time thought of the enhancement of their world competitiveness throughout the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of vitality efficiency and ecolabel rules. In parallel, digitalisation has provided increased alternatives and brought new challenges, including debates on the suitable regulatory stage (sharing of commercial knowledge, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).

These developments, amidst ever extra fierce worldwide competition, require that public authorities and business in the EU work increasingly more closely to design and deploy methods 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 will bring together key coverage makers from the three EU coverage institutions in management of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges still faced, by these three key sectors of business.

Specific Technical and Policy Issues

As the regulatory panorama across Europe, and indeed the whole world, becomes ever extra complicated, the burden on trade only increases. It therefore falls to sector specific commerce organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on these technical and policy issues most related to their respective sectors. In our explicit enviornment, that relates, in fact, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related equipment – a huge and essential subset of trade, 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 maintain 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 handle technical aspects impacting their day by day enterprise operations, they think about the constructive position of industry in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the periods will have a technical theme matching the most acceptable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission together with technical experts from industry and/or research institutes, they may every be reflective of the current legislative terrain, because it pertains to pumps and pumping systems within 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)

The regulatory and legislative landscape throughout Europe is becoming increasingly complicated, and industry, in all its guises, needs to be aware and ready for what’s coming. By partaking with these trade organisations that symbolize your finest interests, you can maintain abreast of all of the compliance developments as they have an effect on your business and the areas in which you use.

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