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 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 further indicated that it’ll rely fairly closely on industry to ship on the main 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 crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is largely building on the aptitude of European industry 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 does not at all times assist the liberty and flexibility wanted for corporations to develop and compete globally.
The European technology industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a really long time considered the enhancement of their world competitiveness inside the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of power effectivity and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has supplied increased alternatives and introduced new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory stage (sharing of industrial information, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever extra fierce worldwide competition, require that public authorities and trade in the EU work increasingly more carefully 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 can deliver collectively 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 faced, by these three key sectors of business.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory landscape across Europe, and certainly the entire world, turns into ever more advanced, the burden on industry only increases. It subsequently falls to sector particular trade organisations, similar to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to determine and advise on those technical and policy points most related to their respective sectors. In our specific area, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated gear – a huge and essential subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump purposes.
Against this backdrop, one of the primary concerns when determining the core themes for the joint convention was to keep up a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to highlight how, along with the significance for firms to address technical features impacting their daily business operations, they consider the positive role of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the periods will have a technical theme matching the most applicable UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission along with technical specialists from industry and/or research institutes, they’ll each be reflective of the current legislative terrain, because it pertains to pumps and pumping systems 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 throughout Europe is changing into more and more complex, and industry, in all its guises, needs to be aware and prepared for what’s coming. By partaking with those trade organisations that represent your best pursuits, you presumably can hold abreast of all of the compliance developments as they have an result on your small business and the areas in which you use.
