PRESS RELEASE 
January 15, 2012 
 THE FIRST PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP FOR ENERGY-FROM-WASTE IN POLAND  
SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT, THROUGH ITS SUBSIDIARY SITA POLSKA, HAS WON THE CONTRACT 
 TO BUILD AND OPERATE FOR 25 YEARS AN ENERGY-FROM-WASTE PLANT IN POZNAŃ 
On 21 December 2012, the City of Poznań awarded the contract for the
construction and operation of an energy from waste plant to SITA Zielona 
Energia - a joint venture between SITA Polska, a subsidiary of 
SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT, and Maguerite Waste Polska, a subsidiary of the Marguerite 
Fund(1) - in the largest ever Public Private Partnership tender in Poland. 
Estimated to 180 million euros, the construction of this energy from waste 
plant will be financed by a long term non-recourse project finance debt and 
will generate total revenue of approximately 850 million euros for SITA 
Zielona Energia during the period of operation. 
Under this project, SITA Zielona Energia will design, build and finance an
energy-fromwaste plant with a capacity of 210,000 tons per year, which will 
then be operated for 25 years by SITA Polska. SITA Zielona Energia will 
deliver this facility by 2016, on a plot provided by the city of Poznan. 
Through this first Public Private Partnership in the field of waste management,
SUEZ ENVIRONMENT intends to offer its expertise and know-how to Polish local
governments who are keen to change their waste management policy by 
encouraging recovery. The plant is expected to reduce significantly the 
disposal of waste in local landfills, in accordance with the EU Landfill 
Directive and Poland's Law on Waste. 
"In awarding this contract, the city of Poznan recognizes the quality of the
project we submitted but also the expertise SITA Polska has already 
demonstrated in Poland for many years." said Jean-Louis Chaussade, CEO of 
SUEZ ENVIRONNMENT.
