Report Update: The Economic and Environmental Impact of Sporting Shooting

Public and Corporate Economic Consultants (PACEC) have been commissioned to update and expand on their 2006 study ‘The Economic and Environmental Impact of Sporting Shooting’.

The 2006 report was prepared by PACEC on behalf of The British Association for Shooting and Conservation, Country Land and Business Association, and Countryside Alliance and in association with Game Conservancy Trust, and it has been decided that is time to refresh the data.  In 2006, game shooting was worth £1.6 billion to the UK economy and it is thought that this has increased since then as have the tourism, business, conservation and biodiversity benefits associated with the shooting industry.

This report has provided some invaluable information and I am delighted that it is to be updated.  It is a cause well worth supporting.  A key part of the review process will be the survey questionnaire that will be sent to the membership of all those organisations that are supporting it.
