About Us

4T Consultants was started in 1996 when Directors Ian Rankine and Bronwyn Reid returned to Australia after many years of working overseas.  

Our objective is to provide reliable data, information and knowledge to managers who influence production, environmental and sustainability outcomes.

One of our first projects in Australia was a major, multi-year project in partnership with the State and Federal Governments – the Integrated Area Wide Management Project.

The core IAWM Project aim was to ensure that reliable data is available to all stakeholders in a major river catchment, so that informed decisions can be made about environmental and sustainability issues and strategies.

The extensive reach of the IAWM Projects throughout Queensland led to 4T being requested to monitor landholder environmental and sustainability impacts, so the practices could be improved over time.   This work led to further contracts with resources companies as that industry increased its footprint across Queensland.  

As 4T has grown, we have added expertise and experience to our team, and formed strong alliances with selected specialist providers of management, environmental and sustainability services and products.

4T Director Ian Rankine has continued his overseas consultancy work in close cooperation with Tropical Crop Consultants Ltd. TCCL is committed to best-management practices for long-term sustainable production in plantation and tropical agricultural crops.

While our company has grown, our commitment to these principles has never changed:  

  • We will always work to the highest standards of ethical and scientific integrity.
  • We will always leave behind some good wherever we work, and make an active contribution to our communities.
  • We will be continually listening, learning and improving ourselves, our systems and the experience that our clients have while working with us.
  • We will always make a positive contribution to natural resource management and sustainability, and not merely point out problems
  • We will find the best possible solution for our clients, not just the most expedient one.
  • Safety for ourselves and our clients is part of everything we do, not just a policy on the office wall.  

As a result of these commitments, our clients know they can rely upon the data, information and advice that we provide for their production, planning and compliance decisions.

4T continues to manage environmental, sustainability, technical research projects and provide advice for clients ranging from major Corporates to small businesses and individuals.

The experiences I have had with 4t (Bronwyn and Ian and their team) on various projects continues to set them apart, well above and beyond the general crowd of environmental consultants and field operations.
