ABSTRACT
Broadening the companies' responsibility to social and environmental fields is problematic: it tends to increase the conflict potentiality as the interests and opinions diversity of actors linked to the company rise. The only way to attempt to resolve the legitimacy crisis in the context of an increasing demand of social and environmental responsibility is in the company government setting. First, different forms of company's legitimacy are observed; then they are linked to the traditional approaches of the government system. Risks and gaps viewed will lead to define bases of a renewal of the government system of companies, from the observation of a few examples.
