Following its bulletins of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it’s going to rely quite heavily on trade to deliver on the major challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and world competitiveness, as nicely as the necessity to overcome the disaster provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is essentially building on the capability of European business 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 all the time support the liberty and flexibility wanted for corporations to develop and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a very lengthy time thought of the enhancement of their international competitiveness within the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy effectivity and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has offered increased alternatives and introduced new challenges, including debates on the appropriate regulatory stage (sharing of commercial knowledge, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competitors, require that public authorities and industry in the EU work more and more extra intently 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 preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which can convey collectively key policy makers from the three EU policy institutions in command 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

In our specific area, that relates, of course, 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 applications.
Against this backdrop, one of the main concerns when determining the core themes for the joint convention was to keep up a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to highlight how, along with the significance for corporations to address technical features impacting their every day enterprise operations, they contemplate the constructive role of trade in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all of the sessions may have a technical theme matching essentially the most appropriate UN SDG, and with illustration from the European Commission together with technical specialists from industry and/or analysis institutes, they will each be reflective of the current legislative terrain, because it pertains 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 landscape across Europe is becoming more and more advanced, and trade, in all its guises, must be aware and ready for what’s coming.
