Jay Harman's book, The Shark's Paint Brush, dives into the world of boimimicry, across industries and applications, to demonstrate how it is at the root of innovation and how you can utilize the principles of biomimcry in your business or projects (heck-even your personal life).
Towards the end of the book, Harman writes, "A mature forest is a self-sustaining producer of diversity and abundance. Many businesses, however, function more like invasive weeds...spread out rapidly into an area, put down shallow roots, and use more than their share of local resources. Invasive weeds are often species with short life cycles." To me, a business model incorporating principles of biomimicry and operating as a mature forest is certainly a Benefit Corporation.
