Louisville ranks 38th among U.S. metro areas in terms of its green jobs count, according to a study released this week by the Brookings Institution.

The Washington, D.C., institute tallied 14,447 green/clean jobs in the Louisville area — 2.4 percent of the region’s jobs. It defined such jobs as those in “the sector of the economy that produces goods and services with an environmental benefit,” listing sample clean economy employers as Amatrol Inc., General Electric Co., Graphic Packaging International, Summit Energy Services Inc., and Winston Industries Inc.

The area added 1,668 clean jobs between 2003 and 2010 for an annual growth calculation of 1.8 percent, the report said. Those jobs earn a median annual wage of $37,313, compared with $35,007 for all jobs in the metro.
