Following its bulletins of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it is going to rely quite closely on trade to deliver on the main challenges confronted 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 essentially constructing on the aptitude of European business 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 does not all the time help the freedom and adaptability needed for firms to develop and compete globally.
ไดอะแฟรม , and particularly our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a very long time considered the enhancement of their world competitiveness inside the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy effectivity and ecolabel laws. In parallel, digitalisation has supplied increased alternatives and introduced new challenges, including debates on the appropriate regulatory level (sharing of commercial knowledge, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).

In our specific arena, that relates, of course, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated tools – a huge and important subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of the primary 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 focus on how, along with the significance for companies to deal with technical aspects impacting their day by day business operations, they think about the positive position of trade in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the periods may have a technical theme matching the most applicable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission together with technical consultants from industry and/or research institutes, they will each be reflective of the present legislative terrain, because it pertains to pumps and pumping techniques 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)
