The Blue Star Sustainability Awards are Keep NSW Beautiful’s new sustainability awards program. Through the Blue Stars we recognise and celebrate the hard work of NSW citizens who promote responsible environmental management in their local area.

Being truly ‘sustainable’ means addressing the entire spectrum of environmental, social and economic factors. So our awards recognise civic pride, community
spirit and future planning in establishing the best projects and programs to come out of NSW communities.
