About us

Salix Finance is a company limited by guarantee (England & Wales Company number 05068355), which is wholly owned by the Government and operates as a Non-Departmental Public Body, under the sponsorship of the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (formerly the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy). 

It is the delivery body for the Government’s Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme and the Low Carbon Skills Fund. These projects provide grant funding to public sector organisations for heat decarbonisation and energy efficiency projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from public sector buildings. Salix also works with the Scottish and Welsh devolved administrations, delivering financial support and loan schemes. 

The funding schemes are dedicated to enabling the public sector to reduce their carbon emissions in line with the UK Government’s commitment to become net-zero by 2050. The schemes provide funding to enable the delivery of capital energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation projects within public sector non-domestic buildings, including central government departments and non-departmental public bodies in England.  

Salix also plays a key role in increasing the awareness across the public sector throughout the UK in the importance of energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation. 

Our expert teams provide professional and tailored support to public sector organisations enabling and inspiring local and national climate action in the transition towards a low-carbon future. 

Salix teams work closely with organisations as they progress their decarbonisation journey.
