I am not sure if there's an adjective for it. I know people use the word "green", but "green" doesn't necessarily mean that it doesn't emit CO2 or cause pollution.

For example:

The green electric car burned and crashed down the road, but the green flying saucer flew by.

    Try inert or harmless, or eco-friendly.

Would carbon neutral do it?

It might.


"Environmentally Friendly" is a phrase that might be used. Certainly it could be applied to whatever the speaker considered free of harmful environmental effects.
