I had the pleasure to visit the headquarters of Pöyry and meet with Jaana Tyynismaa and Jouni Honkala. In this episode 48 of the AEC Business Podcast we talk about circular economy.

Pöyry is an international consulting and engineering company that serves clients globally across the energy, industry and infrastructure sectors. Last year, the net sales of Pöyry Group were over half a billion euros, with around six thousand employees.
