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’s going to rely fairly closely on trade to deliver on the major challenges confronted by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and global 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 basically building on the potential of European trade to design and produce the constructing blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At the same time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that doesn’t always assist the freedom and suppleness wanted for firms to grow and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a very long time thought of the enhancement of their international competitiveness throughout the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy efficiency and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has supplied increased alternatives and brought new challenges, including debates on the appropriate regulatory level (sharing of commercial data, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competition, require that public authorities and trade within the EU work more and more more closely to design and deploy strategies 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 is in a position to deliver collectively key policy makers from the three EU coverage institutions 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 industry.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama across Europe, and certainly the whole world, turns into ever more advanced, the burden on business only will increase. It therefore falls to sector particular commerce organisations, such as Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on those technical and coverage issues most relevant to their respective sectors. In our specific arena, that relates, of course, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated tools – a huge and essential subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump functions.
Against this backdrop, one of many major concerns 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 aspects impacting their every day business operations, they consider the constructive position of industry in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the classes may have a technical theme matching the most applicable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical specialists from business and/or analysis institutes, they may each be reflective of the present legislative terrain, as it relates to pumps and pumping systems within 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 turning into increasingly complicated, and business, in all its guises, needs to be aware and prepared for what is coming. By participating with those commerce organisations that represent your greatest pursuits, you’ll have the ability to maintain abreast of all of the compliance developments as they have an result on your business and the areas in which you use.
Europump’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Joint Conference will take place in Brussels on 9–11 May 2022 on the NH Collection Grand Sablon, Rue Bodenbroek – Bodenbroekstraat, 2, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.
