The Environment and Heritage Group brand guidelines are designed to get you up and running with the Environment and Heritage (EHG) visual identity.
EHG is part of the Department of Planning and Environment (the Department), 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 EHG brand guidelines addresses both pure EHG branding and also the branding of its programs (for example, Saving our Species, Beachwatch).
Where EHG is the publisher of a document, the EHG brand guidelines apply. Only the NSW Government waratah logo should appear on the cover. Templates are available on the EHG intranet and the Environment and Heritage Image Library. Acknowledgment of funding or content support should be included on the imprint page (or back panel of a small format publication).
Where NSW Energy is the publisher of a document, the NSW Government Masterbrand guidelines apply. Only the NSW Government waratah logo should appear on the cover.
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.

NSW Government branding style guide
The NSW Government Branding Visual identity system explain the principles behind the brand and how to correctly apply the NSW Government logo in advertising, social media, signage and external communications.
Use of the logo
The master brand for the Department advertising, social media and external communications is the NSW Government waratah logo.
All EHG communictions should use the colour NSW Government waratah.
Internal communications use the NSW Government waratah logo. Department logos (lockups) were retired with the introduction of the new NSW Government brand at the end of 2021.
Descriptors, such as department names, are decoupled from the waratah. Please refer to the NSW Government Masterbrand guidelines.
