Following its announcements 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 heavily on trade to deliver on the main 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 need to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is essentially building on the potential of European business to design and produce the building blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not at all times support the freedom and suppleness needed for companies to grow and compete globally.
The European expertise industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a really lengthy time thought-about the enhancement of their international competitiveness throughout the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of vitality efficiency and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has provided increased alternatives and brought new challenges, together with debates on the appropriate 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 increasingly 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 topic of the initial debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which is ready to bring together key policy makers from the three EU coverage institutions in cost of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges still faced, by these three key sectors of industry.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory panorama throughout Europe, and indeed the whole world, becomes ever extra complicated, the burden on trade only increases. It due to this fact falls to sector specific trade organisations, corresponding to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on these technical and policy points most relevant to their respective sectors. In our explicit enviornment, that relates, of course, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related equipment – an enormous and important 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 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 firms to address technical features impacting their day by day business operations, they think about the constructive position of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the classes will have a technical theme matching probably the most acceptable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission together with technical specialists from business and/or analysis institutes, they will each be reflective of the present legislative terrain, because 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 panorama throughout Europe is becoming increasingly advanced, and trade, in all its guises, must be conscious and prepared for what is coming. By engaging with those trade organisations that characterize your finest pursuits, you can keep abreast of all the compliance developments as they affect your small business and the areas in which you operate.
Europump’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Joint Conference will take place in Brussels on 9–11 May 2022 at the NH Collection Grand Sablon, Rue Bodenbroek – Bodenbroekstraat, 2, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.
