NSW Government waratah logo no bounding box

Guidelines

The Environment, Energy and Science brand guidelines are designed to get you up and running with the EES visual identity.

EES is part of the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, a subsidiary of the NSW Government, which means it is wholly owned and governed by NSW Government, maintaining a strong affiliation with them through the logo and other brand elements. The EES brand guidelines addresses both pure EES branding and also the branding of its programs (for example, Saving our Species, Beachwatch).

Where EES is the publisher of a document, only the NSW Government waratah logo should appear on the cover. Acknowledgment of funding or content support should be included on the imprint page (or back panel of a small format publication).

Where more than one NSW Government agency co-publishes a document, then the single NSW Government waratah logo is to be used. Agency contributions can be listed as text on the imprint page (or back panel of a small format publication) but multiple logos should not be included.

For enquiries about NSW Government waratah logo use, please email the Brand and Design Team.
