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 appears at the EU’s roadmap for industrial assist.
Vanni Vignoli, president of Europump.
Following its announcements of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has further indicated that it will rely quite heavily on industry to deliver on the major challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and world 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 largely constructing on the aptitude of European industry 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 does not at all times help the liberty and flexibility needed for companies to grow and compete globally.
The European technology industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a very long time thought of the enhancement of their global competitiveness throughout the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of power efficiency and ecolabel regulations. In Dollar , digitalisation has supplied elevated alternatives and brought new challenges, together with debates on the appropriate regulatory level (sharing of commercial knowledge, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce international competition, require that public authorities and trade within the EU work more and more 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 deliver together key coverage makers from the three EU coverage establishments in command of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges still faced, by these three key sectors of trade.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama throughout Europe, and certainly the entire world, turns into ever more complicated, the burden on trade solely increases. Gift falls to sector particular commerce organisations, similar to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to identify and advise on those technical and policy points most relevant to their respective sectors. In our particular enviornment, that relates, of course, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related equipment – a huge and necessary subset of industry, given the width and breadth of pump purposes.
Against this backdrop, one of the major considerations when determining the core themes for the joint conference 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, along with the importance for firms to deal with technical elements impacting their every day business operations, they think about the positive function of industry in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the periods may have a technical theme matching probably the most acceptable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical experts from industry and/or research institutes, they may 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)
The regulatory and legislative landscape throughout Europe is turning into increasingly complicated, and trade, in all its guises, needs to be aware and prepared for what’s coming. By participating with those trade organisations that symbolize your finest interests, you probably can maintain abreast of all the compliance developments as they affect your corporation and the areas during which you use.
Europump’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Joint Conference will happen in Brussels on 9–11 May 2022 on the NH Collection Grand Sablon, Rue Bodenbroek – Bodenbroekstraat, 2, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.

Europump is the European Association of Pump Manufacturers. Established in 1960, it represents sixteen National Associations. Europump members symbolize greater than 450 corporations with a collective manufacturing value of greater than €10 billion and an employee base of 100 000 individuals throughout Europe.
