Germain Briand

Managing Director, Urban Canopee Australia





Curious about the evolution of the rapidly changing world we find ourselves in, Germain is convinced that we must look to nature and its teachings to resolve the numerous challenges the 21st century will present.

Germain is also passionate about socially and environmentally conscious entrepreneurship and deeply believes in the power of business as a powerful lever for economic and societal change.

This has led him to recently create the Australian arm of Urban Canopee, a French start-up disrupting the urban landscaping industry with a bold mission: to accelerate the greening of our cities with innovative solutions to fight the effects of climate change and re-connect us with nature.
