For those interested in sustainability, Lara Barut Collection is fully powered by green energy to reduce its carbon footprint and promote renewable energy. The hotel has already satisfied the criteria for sustainable management and contribution to social, cultural, and environmental life, which had to be completed by 2030 as per the agreement signed between the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Turkey and GSTC. The property also holds an annual Contemporary Young Artists Meeting every October, bringing artists and hotel guests together. At the end of the week, the works created are open to the exhibition’s hotel visitors.
