Sustainability and decarbonisation: how can the EU’s industrial coverage help 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 help.

Following เกจแรงดันลม of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has further indicated that it’ll rely fairly heavily on industry to ship on the main 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 necessity to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is largely constructing on the potential of European trade to design and produce the constructing blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not always support the liberty and flexibility wanted for companies to grow and compete globally.
The European expertise industries, and particularly our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for an extended time thought of the enhancement of their international competitiveness inside the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of vitality effectivity and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has offered increased opportunities and introduced new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory level (sharing of commercial data, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competition, require that public authorities and business within the EU work increasingly extra carefully to design and deploy methods that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will be the topic of the preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which will deliver together key policy makers from the three EU coverage establishments in management of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges nonetheless confronted, by these three key sectors of industry.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama throughout Europe, and indeed the whole world, turns into ever more complex, the burden on business only will increase. It due to this fact falls to sector specific commerce organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to identify and advise on these technical and coverage issues most relevant to their respective sectors. In our explicit area, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated gear – an enormous and necessary subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump purposes.
Against this backdrop, one of many major issues when determining 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 highlight how, together with the significance for firms to handle technical features impacting their daily enterprise operations, they consider the constructive function of trade in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the periods may have a technical theme matching probably the most appropriate UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission together with technical specialists from trade and/or analysis institutes, they will every be reflective of the present legislative terrain, as 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 supplies and substances of concern (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: Clean Water and Sanitation)
