Sustainability and decarbonisation: how can the EU’s industrial policy support 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 support.
Vanni Vignoli, president of Europump.
Following its bulletins of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it’ll rely quite heavily on industry to deliver on the main challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and world competitiveness, as well as the need to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is essentially building on the aptitude of European trade 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 help the liberty and suppleness needed for corporations to grow and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a protracted time considered the enhancement of their global 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 provided elevated opportunities and brought new challenges, together with debates on the appropriate regulatory level (sharing of business knowledge, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competitors, require that public authorities and industry in the EU work more and more extra 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 preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which will deliver together key policy makers from the three EU policy establishments in cost of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges still confronted, by these three key sectors of industry.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory landscape throughout Europe, and certainly the entire world, turns into ever extra complex, the burden on industry only will increase. It subsequently falls to sector specific trade organisations, similar to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on these technical and policy issues most related to their respective sectors. In our particular arena, that relates, in fact, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated gear – an enormous and essential subset of business, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of the main issues when determining the core themes for the joint convention was to maintain a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to spotlight how, together with the significance for firms to deal with technical aspects impacting their daily enterprise operations, they contemplate the constructive position of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the sessions 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 may every 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 supplies and substances of concern (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: Clean Water and Sanitation)
The regulatory and legislative panorama across Europe is becoming increasingly complicated, and industry, in all its guises, needs to be conscious and prepared for what is coming. By engaging with those commerce organisations that represent your greatest pursuits, you probably can keep abreast of all of the compliance developments as they have an result on your corporation and the areas in which you use.
Europump’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Joint Conference will take place in Brussels on 9–11 May 2022 at the NH Collection Grand Sablon, Rue Bodenbroek – Bodenbroekstraat, 2, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.
