In Paris Region in 2018, 26,100 employees were involved in green occupations and 790,300 in greenish occupations. They are mainly blue-collar or executive roles rarely filled by women. Seven out of ten “green” occupations are located in Paris and the immediate suburbs. “Greenish” occupations are overrepresented in the outer suburbs due to the presence of research centres. Over the past ten years, more people have been involved in “greenish” occupations than in public transport, construction or conservation.
