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 looks on the EU’s roadmap for industrial assist.

Following its announcements of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it’ll rely fairly closely on business to deliver on the main challenges confronted by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and international 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 building on the aptitude of European industry to design and produce the building blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At เครื่องมือวัดความดัน , the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not all the time help the liberty and suppleness wanted for firms to develop and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for an extended time considered the enhancement of their world 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 increased opportunities and introduced new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory stage (sharing of commercial knowledge, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce international competitors, require that public authorities and industry 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 will be the topic of the initial debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which will bring together key coverage makers from the three EU policy institutions in control of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges still confronted, by these three key sectors of trade.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama across Europe, and indeed the whole world, becomes ever more complex, the burden on industry only increases. It due to this fact falls to sector particular trade organisations, similar to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to determine and advise on these technical and coverage issues most related to their respective sectors. In our specific arena, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related tools – a huge and necessary subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of the primary considerations when figuring out the core themes for the joint convention was to take care of 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 address technical aspects impacting their day by day business operations, they contemplate the constructive position of trade in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the sessions may have a technical theme matching the most appropriate UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission together with technical experts from trade and/or analysis institutes, they’ll each be reflective of the current legislative terrain, because it relates to pumps and pumping methods in the following key areas:
