Founded in 1931, The Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI) is an independent membership network - representing a cross-section of the private, public and social economy sectors – which seeks to engage civic Scotland and influence Government and key stakeholders to ensure sustainable inclusive economic growth and flourishing communities, everywhere in Scotland. We are a non-political, not-for-profit organisation, involving senior representatives and leaders across Scotland's economy. Funded by our members' subscriptions, this unique network of knowledge, expertise and experience provides a dynamic and creative force for change.
