This paper aims to contribute to the construction of new theoretical frameworks in critical bases on corporate responsibility in the sustainable development of territories. For this, we present at first the approaches of New Economic Sociology as a way to reflect about the development beyond the pure economic perspective. In a second step, we discuss the contradictions of sustainable development concepts and the implications of its institutionalization. Then we investigate some approaches on corporate social responsibility with focus on a critical discussion on the Theory of Stakeholders which is a very present theory in traditional studies on the role of business in sustainable development of territories.
