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.
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 fairly heavily on industry to ship 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 crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is basically building 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 doesn’t always support the freedom and adaptability needed for companies to develop 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 international competitiveness inside the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of vitality efficiency and ecolabel rules. In parallel, digitalisation has offered increased alternatives and introduced new challenges, including debates on the suitable regulatory level (sharing of industrial data, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever extra fierce international competitors, require that public authorities and trade in the EU work more and more extra closely to design and deploy strategies that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will be the subject of the preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which will deliver together key coverage makers from the three EU policy institutions 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 across Europe, and certainly the whole world, turns into ever more complex, the burden on business solely will increase. It due to this fact falls to sector particular trade organisations, such as Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on these technical and coverage points most relevant to their respective sectors. In our explicit arena, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related gear – a huge and important subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of many major issues when determining the core themes for the joint convention 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, together with the significance for companies to handle technical elements impacting their daily business operations, they consider the constructive position of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the sessions will have a technical theme matching essentially the most acceptable UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission together with technical consultants from trade and/or research institutes, they may every be reflective of the present legislative terrain, because it relates to pumps and pumping techniques 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 materials and substances of concern (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: Clean Water and Sanitation)
The regulatory and legislative panorama throughout Europe is becoming increasingly advanced, and industry, in all its guises, needs to be conscious and ready for what is coming. By engaging with those trade organisations that symbolize your finest pursuits, you can hold abreast of all the compliance developments as they affect your corporation and the areas during which you operate.
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.
