Scottish Export Index launched to recognise the Best in Business

Sophie Law

The Scottish Export Index (formally Scottish Export Awards) is returning for the first time since 2018, in recognition of the continued success of Scotland’s exporters on the world stage, which is believed to account for £87.1bn worth of exports globally

Produced by UMi, along with headline sponsors HSBC and strategic partners Scottish Government and Scotland House London, the Scottish Export Index will recognise the exporting achievements from the 2022 calendar year.

What’s new for the 2022 Index?

This Scottish Export Index will have an underlying focus on sustainability, with a new dedicated award category for ‘Net Zero Exporter’ being introduced. The full list of award categories can be found on their website here, and includes SME Exporter, Large Exporter, New to Export, Emerging Markets Exporter, Food and Drink Exporter and Digital Exporter.
