  Veolia Environnement: Press Release

Business Wire

PARIS -- October 26, 2012

Regulatory News:

EDF filed a lawsuit against Veolia Environnement (Paris:VIE) in the Commercial
Court of Paris to obtain the right to own 50% of the group Dalkia, specialist
in energy services.

The Company highlights that EDF lost its right to increase its ownership in
the capital of Dalkia in 2005.

Veolia Environnement, which owns 66% of Dalkia’s share capital, has always
supported its subsidiary, in particular through the financing of its
international growth.

The Company therefore intends to strongly oppose EDF’s demand, which it views
as without merit.
