Sustainability and decarbonisation: how can the EU’s industrial coverage assist 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 assist.
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’s going to rely quite heavily on business to ship on the major challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and global competitiveness, in addition to the necessity to overcome the disaster provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is basically constructing on the capability of European trade to design and produce the building blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At the same time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that doesn’t at all times support the freedom and suppleness needed for corporations to develop and compete globally.
ชนิดของpressuregauge , and in particular our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a long time thought-about the enhancement of their global competitiveness within the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of power effectivity and ecolabel rules. In parallel, digitalisation has offered elevated alternatives and introduced new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory degree (sharing of business information, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever extra fierce international competition, require that public authorities and business in the EU work more and more extra carefully to design and deploy strategies that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will be the subject of the preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which can convey together key policy makers from the three EU policy institutions in control of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges nonetheless confronted, by these three key sectors of business.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory landscape throughout Europe, and indeed the whole world, becomes ever extra complicated, the burden on industry solely will increase. It therefore falls to sector particular trade organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on these technical and policy points most relevant to their respective sectors. In our explicit enviornment, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related tools – a huge and essential subset of industry, given the width and breadth of pump functions.
Against this backdrop, one of many major 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 focus on how, along with the significance for firms to deal with technical elements impacting their daily enterprise operations, they think about the optimistic position of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the periods may have a technical theme matching essentially the most appropriate UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission together with technical specialists from trade and/or research institutes, they will each be reflective of the present legislative terrain, because 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 materials and substances of concern (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: Clean Water and Sanitation)
