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 trade to ship on the major challenges confronted by our economies and societies in Europe. This is especially the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and international competitiveness, in addition to the want 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 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 does not all the time help the liberty and suppleness wanted for companies to grow and compete globally.
The European technology industries, and in particular our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for an extended time thought-about the enhancement of their global 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 elevated opportunities and brought new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory stage (sharing of industrial information, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever extra fierce worldwide competitors, require that public authorities and business within the EU work more and more more carefully to design and deploy methods 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 will deliver together key policy makers from the three EU coverage institutions in charge of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements loved, and challenges still confronted, by these three key sectors of business.

As the regulatory landscape throughout Europe, and certainly the entire world, turns into ever extra advanced, the burden on trade only increases. It subsequently falls to sector particular trade organisations, similar to Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to determine and advise on those technical and coverage issues most related to their respective sectors. In our specific arena, that relates, in fact, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump associated equipment – 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 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 significance for companies to handle technical features impacting their daily business operations, they think about the constructive function of industry in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the classes could have a technical theme matching probably the most appropriate UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission along with technical consultants from industry and/or research institutes, they may every be reflective of the current legislative terrain, as it pertains to pumps and pumping systems within 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 landscape across Europe is turning into more and more complex, and trade, in all its guises, must be conscious and ready for what’s coming. By engaging with these trade organisations that characterize your finest interests, you can maintain abreast of all the compliance developments as they affect your small business and the areas by which you operate.
