Abstract

This paper tries to identify French for-profit public services’ sustainable business strategies which could lead to a "global" responsibility (i.e. an economical, social and environmental responsibility). These organizations have always managed contradictory aims between their public missions and their profitability. They try to develop new solutions in order to coordinate the contradictory objectives of their stakeholders. This paper highlights the existence of another conception of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Cet article cherche a identifier les pratiques responsables des services publics marchands (SPM), premisses d’une responsabilité plus "globale" des entreprises (au sens plus large du terme). Ces entreprises du SPM, qui ont eu l’habitude de gerer des conflits contradictoires entre leurs missions de service public et leurs imperatifs de rentabilite, développent aujourd’hui des solutions innovantes pour coordonner les interets divergents de leurs parties prenantes. Cet article met ainsi en évidence l’existence d’une autre conception de la RSE (responsabilite sociale et environnementale de l’entreprise) relativement peu (voire pas du tout) traitee par la littérature étudiant cette question.
