Shot Dispersal Software Project: Through one of its European member associations the WFSA Environment Sub-Committee is developing and distributing a software program to aid in the charting of lead shot dispersal on trap, skeet and sporting clays ranges.

The Sub-Committee formalizes the exchange of this type of information.

Monitoring International Environmental Treaties: The Sub-Committee monitors international treaties which may affect hunting and sport shooting, such as the Convention on Importation and Trade in Endangered Species and the Bio-Diversity Treaty.
