About us

What is Scottish Business UK?

Scottish Business UK (SBUK) is the voice of pro-Union business people operating in Scotland.

As an apolitical, issue-led organisation, which promotes the positive case for Scotland remaining part of the United Kingdom, SBUK provides a voice for pro-union business leaders, to complement the wider effort to protect the union, without duplicating other existing initiatives.

As an organisation representing cross-sector and geographical reach of business leaders operating in Scotland, SBUK is sending a clear signal to the Scottish Government that we do not welcome the additional uncertainty created by the continued threat of a second independence referendum.

SBUK is providing a forceful voice against a second independence referendum and – if a further referendum is announced – SBUK stands ready to garner business support to secure the best interests for business across Scotland.
