Salix has worked with 725 clients across the public sector, including local authorities, central government, schools, universities and colleges and NHS trusts.

On average Salix projects will pay back their costs within 3.4 years and go on to save almost four times the original investment over their effective lifetime.  All Salix grants and loans are either reinvested in new projects or eventually returned to government. 

See below for a selection of Further Education (FE) case studies illustrating how Salix help clients save money and reduce emissions. 

CO2 savings from these projects are expected to realise in excess of 350000 tonnes over their lifetime.
