Ahead of its Annual Meeting and Joint Conference with CEIR and Pneurop in Brussels this May, Europump president Vanni Vignoli appears at the EU’s roadmap for industrial support.
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’s going to rely quite heavily on business to deliver 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. ร้านซ่อมเครื่องวัดความดันโลหิต and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is essentially building on the capability of European business to design and produce the constructing blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that doesn’t always assist the liberty and suppleness wanted for companies to develop and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and particularly our pumps, compressors, faucets and valves sectors, have for a protracted time considered the enhancement of their international competitiveness within the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of power efficiency and ecolabel laws. In parallel, digitalisation has provided increased opportunities and introduced new challenges, including debates on the appropriate regulatory degree (sharing of industrial information, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever extra fierce worldwide competitors, require that public authorities and trade within the EU work more and more extra carefully to design and deploy strategies that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This would be the subject of the preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which can convey together key policy makers from the three EU policy establishments in command of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges still confronted, by these three key sectors of business.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues
As the regulatory landscape across Europe, and indeed the whole world, becomes ever more complicated, the burden on trade solely increases. It due to this fact falls to sector specific commerce organisations, such as Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on these technical and policy points most relevant to their respective sectors. In our explicit area, that relates, after all, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related tools – an enormous and necessary subset of trade, given the width and breadth of pump applications.
Against this backdrop, one of many primary 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 highlight how, together with the importance for firms to handle technical features impacting their day by day business operations, they think about the constructive function of trade in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the sessions may have a technical theme matching probably the most applicable UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission along with technical experts from trade and/or analysis institutes, they will each be reflective of the present 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)
