Rio Tinto has advised that it will not proceed with plans to adopt a new executive remuneration model after meetings with key shareholders indicated that it was unlikely to secure sufficient support from investors.

However, investors have raised concerns about the hybrid model, and the issue has attracted scrutiny by the financial services royal commission.
