The Scottish Council for Development and Industry wants Scotland to be a world-leading economy, which benefits its people and the planet. Supporting our work sends a message about your commitment to a more prosperous and fairer Scotland.
Our members share that vision. We are a unique coalition of public, private and civil society organisations working across industries, sectors and regions.
Join SCDI to collaborate with a powerful network of large employers and SMEs, local authorities, public bodies, colleges and universities, cultural institutions, charities and social enterprises, trade unions, trade and professional bodies.
Our strength lies in our diversity and our convening power.
Our members are leaders in their field. Their expertise ensures SCDI is a trusted voice and a powerful ally. We are independent of government and any single sectoral or industry interest.
