PRESS RELEASE 
April 8, 2013 
THE FIRST PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP FOR ENERGY FROM WASTE IN POLAND  
SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT, THROUGH ITS SUBSIDIARY SITA POLSKA, SIGNS TODAY IN POZNAŃ
THE CONTRACT TO BUILD AND OPERATE FOR 25 YEARS AN ENERGY FROM WASTE PLANT 
On 8 April 2013, SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT signed along with the President of the City
of Poznań, Ryszard Grobelny, a contract to construct and operate a municipal
energy from waste plant. This contract is the largest ever Public Private
Partnership (PPP) tender in Poland. 
The bid of 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) - was selected by the City of Poznań as the result of a
two-year tender procedure and announced in December 2012. 
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.
