A study published by the EU Commission in 2020 reached the conclusion that listed companies tend to focus on short-term shareholder benefits as opposed to the long interests of the company. The EU Commission also found that the most efficient way of changing this perceived focus would be through changes in legislation applicable to listed companies within the EU in order to force such change. 

This article contains a description of the proposed rules, and how the perceived short-term focus does not reflect current paradigms and approaches currently taken by US and Danish listed companies.
