Ahead of its Annual Meeting and Joint Conference with CEIR and Pneurop in Brussels this May, Europump president Vanni Vignoli appears 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 additional indicated that it’ll rely quite heavily on industry to ship on the most important challenges confronted by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and international 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 essentially constructing on the potential of European trade to design and produce the building blocks of the dual green and digital transition. At the same time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that doesn’t always help the freedom and adaptability wanted for firms to grow and compete globally.
The European technology industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a long time thought-about the enhancement of their international competitiveness within the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of power effectivity and ecolabel laws. In parallel, digitalisation has provided increased alternatives and brought new challenges, including debates on the appropriate regulatory stage (sharing of business information, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competition, require that public authorities and business within the EU work increasingly more 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 establishments in management of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges nonetheless faced, by these three key sectors of trade.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory landscape throughout Europe, and certainly the whole world, turns into ever more complex, the burden on industry only increases. It therefore falls to sector specific commerce organisations, such as Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on those technical and policy points most related to their respective sectors. In our specific area, that relates, in fact, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related equipment – a huge and necessary subset of business, given the width and breadth of pump purposes.
Against this backdrop, one of the major considerations when figuring out 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 spotlight how, together with the significance for firms to address technical aspects impacting their daily business operations, they contemplate the constructive position of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the periods could have a technical theme matching the most acceptable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical experts from trade and/or analysis institutes, they will every be reflective of the current legislative terrain, as it pertains 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)
The regulatory and legislative panorama throughout Europe is becoming more and more complex, and trade, in all its guises, must be conscious and ready for what’s coming. By engaging with those trade organisations that characterize your greatest pursuits, you probably can hold 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 on the NH Collection Grand Sablon, Rue Bodenbroek – Bodenbroekstraat, 2, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium.
