Abstract

[eng] Sustainable development and corporate social responsibility : contribution of economical theory . This article gives an overall picture of theoretical models which underlie the issue of sustainable development, as well as empirical results on macroeconomic or corporate data. This article highlights the impact of qualitative factors (technical progress, human resources) on performance. The concept of sustainable development finds its theoretical justification in the endogenous growth models. The major innovation of these models consists in determining growth with phenomena or behaviours which were before considered as externalities. In this perspective, sustainable development should switch from a status of concept to a reference model as well at macroeconomic level as microeconomic. . JEL classification : E1, M14, Q01 [fre] L’objet de cet article est de présenter d’une façon synthétique les modèles théoriques, qui sous tendent la problématique du développement durable, ainsi que les résultats empiriques sur les données macroéconomiques et d’entreprises, de mettre en évidence l’impact des facteurs qualitatifs (progrès techniques, capital humain...) sur la performance. Le concept du développement durable trouve sa justification théorique dans les modèles de croissance endogène. En effet, l’innovation majeure de ces modèles consiste à internaliser des phénomènes ou des comportements qui étaient considérés auparavant comme des externalités. Dans cette perspective, le développement durable devrait passer du statut de concept à celui de modèle de référence aussi bien au niveau macroéconomique que microéconomique. . Classification JEL : E1, M14, Q01
