Three executives at Rio Tinto are to miss out on millions of pounds worth of bonuses after it destroyed two sacred indigenous sites in Australia. CEO Jean-Sebastien Jacques will lose pay-outs totalling £2.7m while two other senior managers are to take hits of £600,000 and £525,000. The company said that it failed to meet some of its own standards ’in relation to...protection of cultural heritage.’
