IN2Water solution was recognized for contribution to SDG 12 (sustainable production and consumption). Average losses of (uncharged) water in public water supply systems in Croatia amount to nearly 50 percent; in money, this is a loss of over two billion kunas annually. Increase environmental concerns and citizens’ awareness of unsustainability of such situation sees growth of initiatives to decrease these losses. This solution is one of such initiatives to control losses in water supply.
