Sustainability and decarbonisation: how can the EU’s industrial policy support industry’s efforts?

Ahead of its Annual Meeting and Joint Conference with CEIR and Pneurop in Brussels this May, Europump president Vanni Vignoli seems on the EU’s roadmap for industrial help.

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 quite closely on industry to deliver on the most important challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and global competitiveness, as nicely as the want 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 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 doesn’t always support the freedom and suppleness wanted for firms to develop and compete globally.
The European technology industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a protracted time thought-about the enhancement of their global competitiveness throughout the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy effectivity and ecolabel laws. In parallel, digitalisation has offered increased opportunities and brought new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory stage (sharing of industrial information, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
เครื่องมือตรวจวัดความดันเลือดเรียกว่า , amidst ever extra fierce international competition, require that public authorities and industry in the EU work more and more more intently 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 is in a position to deliver together key policy makers from the three EU coverage institutions in control of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges nonetheless confronted, by these three key sectors of trade.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama across Europe, and indeed the whole world, turns into ever extra complex, the burden on industry only will increase. It due to this fact falls to sector particular trade organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to identify and advise on those technical and policy issues most relevant to their respective sectors. In our specific area, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related tools – an enormous and important subset of business, given the width and breadth of pump functions.
Against this backdrop, one of many main issues when determining the core themes for the joint convention was to maintain 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 features impacting their day by day business operations, they consider the positive position of trade in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the classes may have a technical theme matching the most appropriate UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission along with technical consultants from business and/or research institutes, they’ll every be reflective of the current legislative terrain, because it relates 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)
