A Competitive Business Environment

Aberdeen is a global brand. From our position high on the east coast of Scotland, Aberdeen has exerted its influence right around the planet.

Commonly known for our oil and gas industry, the region's strengths don't stop there. We are at the forefront of the global energy transition to a lower-carbon world. We are an important centre for life sciences with world-leading health research. We are also home to food and drink brands that are enjoyed around the world.

Our international connections work both ways and our tradition of global trade has led to an incredibly diverse population.

Aberdeen has moved seamlessly into scientific, engineering, digital and low carbon specialisms. The city has one of the largest concentrations of life scientists in Europe and the largest biologics cluster in the UK after Cambridge.

Our city region is also globally important in the food and drink sector, hosting the iconic rule breakers, Brewdog and arguably the greatest whiskies in the world. Our roster of household brands also includes Mackie's ice cream and Dean's shortbread.

As well as being the home of the world-renowned Aberdeen Angus cattle, Europe's biggest seafood catches are landed at Peterhead and Fraserburgh. Food and drink companies in the city region export to more than 100 countries around the globe.
