Cleantech in Flanders employed 29.564 people (full time equivalents) in 2020. Total employment has been steadily growing. The continued growth in the midst of a global health crisis further lends creed to the resilience of the sector. This is in contrast with the acute loss of jobs in many other sectors.

Tech Providers and Enablers are the main employers, accounting for approximately 70% of the total FTE’s employed in cleantech. These memberships are typified by being SMEs. Given that both implementors and tech providers are a sector where acquisitions and mergers are a common strategy to strengthen market positions, it Is anticipated that in the future the average number of FTEs per actor will continue to rise as the market grows and consolidates.
