KARACHI, February 27, 2020: The Global Compact Network Pakistan (GCNP) has conferred the first prize of “Living the Global Compact Best Practices Sustainability Award 2019 to Indus Motor Company (IMC) in the category of Multinational Companies. This prestigious award is granted in recognition of integrating the ten principles of United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and for embracing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Winning this prestigious award fifth time in a row signifies IMC’s continuous commitment towards its objective of enhancing quality of life and contributing towards a healthier future in complete alignment with UN’s SDGs. Hence, the company places the highest priority on good governance, steering the management and employees to follow strict procedural controls, regular audits and disclosures to ensure transparency, work through clear management lines and respect labor laws to provide an equitable environment for all staff.

The acknowledgement not only motivates us further to continue our mission in line with UNGC principles but also maximize our support to SDGs.”
He further expressed, “In today’s business world, sustainable movement is gaining traction worldwide among governments and businesses, which is not only good for the environment and the communities they operate in, but beneficial to the bottom line as well.”
NA Standing Committee Impressed with IMC’s Operations
Members of the National Assembly Standing Committee on Industries and Production visited Indus Motor Company to witness the manufacturing process of vehicles.
The delegation was led by the Chairman of standing committee Mr. Sajid Hussian Turi, MNA. Members include Mr. Nasir Khan Musazai, Mr. Muhammad Akram, Sahibzada Sibgatullah, Ms. Sajida Begum, Mr. Usama Qadri, Mr. Muhammad Pervaiz Malik, Mr. Riaz Ul Haq and Mahar Irshad Ahmed Khan. Senior officials from the ministry of industries were also present.
The Committee paid its visit to different sections of the manufacturing plant and was amazed to witness the localization, which the company has achieved. They applauded the efforts of IMC to create local engineering activity, local economic activity and the company’s contribution towards the distribution of wealth and employment generation.
The committee was pleased with the extent of investment IMC has undertaken and capacity expansion. The committee members were pleased to see the elements of discipline and skilled workforce and investment by IMC in human capital development. At every step quality is being ensured through Process Automation and Coordinate Measuring Machines. It has been observed that Toyota Global Standards have been followed in all processes.
The committee also lauded IMC’s contribution and value sharing through CSR. Million tree drive and other key initiatives are examples of responsible corporate citizens and should be followed by other organizations.
The Committee appreciated the role of Management for providing the good quality/ standards products in Pakistan and launching of new models of cars.
“Government should ensure the consistency of policies to provide a predictable and transparent environment which is a prerequisite for industrialization and economic growth,” said CEO IMC, Ali Asghar Jamali.
He added that the Government should support in promoting localization which will ultimately lead to employment opportunities, transfer of technology and open doors to export.
The auto industry is home to 3 million direct and indirect labour and the Government has to ensure that investment and localization achieved by the auto industry for the past many decades should be safeguarded so that existing players and new entrants are motivated to invest more.
Highlighting the challenges to industry, CEO said that rupee devaluation, imposition of Federal Excise Duty and Additional Custom Duty has impacted the auto industry adversely. Government should promote Make in Pakistan by encouraging industrialization.
Hence, he added, the current situation requires that the Government and policymakers should not digress from their commitment to promote the local industry.
The committee has promised to take up the taxes and duties matters to the relevant authorities in order to support the biggest manufacturing sector of Pakistan.
IMC focused on improving operational efficiencies
Karachi: Toyota-IMC says demand for automobiles declined significantly in Pakistan during the first half of the fiscal year 2019-2020, due to a slowdown in the economy, devaluation of the PKR against the US Dollar, and various structural reforms and policies of the Government.
It says demand was also affected by Additional Custom Duty and FED coupled with rising inflation and declining purchasing power of consumers. Industry growth remained heavily dependent on consistent government policies and favourable economic conditions.
Mr. Ali Asghar Jamali, CEO, Indus Motor Company, says, “I am happy to state that during this period, IMC has remained focused on improving its operational efficiencies, maintaining high quality standards, effectively managing cost pressures and delivering maximum value to its customers.”
Combined sales of CKD and CBU produced by IMC-Toyota during the half year ended December 31, 2019, stood at 14,453 units. This was down by 56% over 33,087 units for the same period in the previous year. IMC has reported that the decline was mainly due to custom duty increase and levy of FED. It also said that while rise in interest rates reduced auto financing, the devaluation of Pakistan Rupee was also a factor in the decline.
IMC’s net sales revenues for the half year ended December 31, 2019, declined to Rs 42.8 billion as compared to Rs. 76.4 billion for the same period last year. The Company’s profit after tax, declined to Rs 2.3 billion as against Rs. 6.9 billion in the same period the previous year. The marked decline in sales and profit for IMC was also a result of the devaluation of the Pak Rupee against the US Dollar.
The Earnings per Share of IMC for the half year ended December 31, 2019, was Rs. 29.3 as compared to Rs. 87.9 in the same period last year. Even then, a second interim cash dividend of Rs. 6 per share was declared by the company Board of Directors for the half year ended December 31, 2019.
IMC received the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) Top 25 Performing Companies Awards for 2018 for its dedication and excellent performance. IMC was also declared as the Most Outstanding Company in the category of Automobile & Components during 2019 by Asiamoney, an influential business publication.

IMC’s accelerates the Million Tree Drive
Karachi, Nov 8, 2019: Indus Motor Company accelerates the million tree plantation drive. Over 150 employees from Indus Motor Company and Thal Boshoku Pakistan carried out the tree plantation activity on Nov 7, 2019 in front of Thal Boshuko, which is spread over 5 acres, situated in Port Qasim.
The activity is a part of IMC’s ‘Million Tree Drive’ in which they have so far planted more than 300,000 trees.
In his remarks on the company’s on-going tree plantation drive, the CEO of IMC, Ali Asghar Jamali said, “The Million Tree Drive represents IMC’s commitment to support the government’s Clean and Green Pakistan Movement. We strive to bring down CO2 emissions from factories to zero as part of Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050. In pursuance of this, we have pledged to plant one million trees across Pakistan.”
As an active signatory of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), IMC has underscored its contribution towards achieving the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs).
The IMC’s ‘Million Tree Plantation’ project is also moving forward with the long-term aim of protecting the land against erosion, turning the country’s barren landscape into forests, enhancing rainfall prospects and helping mitigate the effects of climate change on ecosystems and biodiversity of the country.
No layoffs despite slowdown, says IMC
Karachi, October 25, 2019: Indus Motor Company (IMC) has announced that there will be no layoff of employees despite slowdown in production.
IMC has resumed production to 50% capacity from October 1 after a closure over the last 15 days of September.
“The country is going through an economic slowdown and the overall market has remained volatile. This has indeed been a great struggle. The factors largely contributing to this include Rupee depreciation, reduction in car financing, increase in Federal excise duties (FED) and higher input costs,” said a spokesman of IMC.
“Over a 12-month period, the rupee depreciated over 31.6%. Additionally, the Government of Pakistan has imposed 7% ACD, 3% additional sales tax on all imports and 7.5% FED for vehicles of 2000cc and above. There is also a fresh Federal Excise Duty of 2.5% and 5% FED on locally manufactured vehicles. All this is having an adverse impact on the auto sector and has resulted in a major decline in sales. Of the total cost of a vehicle, 40% comprises the taxes and levies imposed by the government. It is a misconception that the rising rate of tax collection will not affect vehicle sales and total tax collection; in fact, the decline in sales will result in decline in tax collection from the auto sector,” he added.
“Yet, we have decided not to go for layoffs despite the hard times. We are absorbing this financial crunch,” he said.
A general perception exists in Pakistan that cars assembled locally have gradually become expensive without any value addition. The prices of cars have not increased but have been adjusted according to the depreciation of the Pakistani rupee against the dollar. Prices have, in fact, been reduced by the manufacturers but it seems as if they have increased since the PKR is depreciating in relation to the US dollar and the customer is paying more in rupee terms.
The spokesperson pointed out that with every model change; IMC has successfully incorporated more localization, increased specifications and reduced the dollarized cost by procuring local parts worth over PKR 200+ million every working day.
The spokesman added that in 1993, the price of Corolla was $19,630 with 15% GST and the PKR value was Rs.27 against the dollar. Now, in 2019, the same Corolla is available for $15,618 despite 17% sales tax and 5% FED while the PKR value against the dollar is Rs.160. This means better specifications at low price.
He said this clearly showed that over the years, IMC had localized more and sustained the burden of heavy taxation and PKR devaluation to keep providing quality vehicles at low prices to its valued customers.
Indus Motor Releases Sustainability Report 2019
Karachi, Sept 25, 2019: Indus Motor Company fully recognizes the importance of disclosing information concerning its approach to its triple bottom line responsibility.

He added, “We now intend to set more aggressive goals in sustainability practices and will more forcefully pursue innovation, as this will help improve the sustainability of industry as a whole”.
IMC’s Women Employees Participate in Tree Plantation Campaign
The women employees of Indus Motor Company (IMC) planted trees to contribute to the company’s ‘Million Tree Drive’.
More than 80 women employees of IMC have planted trees to mark their participation in the company’s environment initiative.

“More than 175,000 plants have been planted across Pakistan till now. The purpose of this campaign is to engage IMC employees and senior management in a collective effort to stimulate a positive impact on their surroundings,” said CEO IMC Ali Asghar Jamali.
He added their inspiration comes from the government’s vision for a greener Pakistan and they are hopeful that their efforts would serve as an example for other individuals and businesses to emulate.
With the ambition to reduce its carbon footprint and support Toyota’s pledge to zero CO2 emissions from factories by 2050, the company aims to plant one million trees across the city over the next few years.
As an active signatory of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the company underscored its contribution in achieving sustainable development goals, particularly goal number 13 regarding climate action.

Indus Motor Company declares profit after tax of PKR 13.71 Billion for FY19

The decline in the automobile industry is attributed to an overall economic slowdown, rising interest rates, and escalating vehicle prices on the back of the plunging Pakistani rupee against the US dollar and sky-rocketing inflation. The recent restriction on the import of used vehicles into the country is a positive step to promote local manufacturing in Pakistan.
Application of 10% FED in Oct 2018 on vehicles above 1700cc negatively impacted on luxury vehicle segment during last 9 months of FY 2018-2019.

Industry-wide production capacities surpass total market demand and the vehicles are now readily available while new products offer wider customer choices.
The company, despite an economic slowdown, operated its manufacturing facilities beyond capacity working daily in overtime hours and off Saturdays and has achieved the highest ever production record of 65,346 units, up by 3.91% compared to 62,886 units last year.
Ali Asghar Jamali, CEO Indus Motor Company said, “We are committed to the Pakistani market and to our loyal customers who have shown great trust in our products year on year. The combined impact of tax increases and PKR devaluation has increased cost of inputs and ultimately result in further price increases. For sustained growth, consumer confidence is necessary. We urge the government to introduce policies that will restore market confidence and accelerate economic activities across the board.”
The combined sales of Toyota CKD and CBU vehicles stood at 66,211 units, up by 3.5% compared to 64,000 units in the previous year. The market share stood at 22% of locally manufactured PC and LCV vehicles for the period.

Toyota believes that all individuals share a responsibility to protect the environment and, therefore, prioritizes sustainability throughout its dealership network.
All Toyota-IMC dealerships currently monitor their natural resource usage and waste disposal and are further encouraged to take action on reducing their carbon footprint. Toyota-IMC’s dealerships take one step further in the fight for environmental preservation by holding activities to raise customer awareness.
Indus Motor Company plans to certify 100% of its dealership network as Eco dealers by the year 2020.
IMC Holds 26th Annual QCC Convention
Karachi, August 26, 2019: Indus Motor Company (IMC) held its 26th Annual Quality Control Circle (QCC) Convention under the theme “Workplace Development & Employee Motivation – Way to Standardized Work” in Karachi recently.
The convention was aimed at recognizing the spirit of Kaizen (Continuous Improvement), one of the two core pillars at IMC and its business partners. Raheel Asghar, Senior Director Technical IMC welcomed the participants and attendees at the QCC Convention. He highlighted Kaizen as the essence of IMC’s business operations.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Guest, Barrister Murtaza Wahab, Adviser to Chief Minister of Sindh on Law, Environment, Climate Change, Coastal Development and Spokesperson for Sindh Government, said “Engaging the employees for continuous improvement as practiced by IMC is absolutely essential element for our national progress. I would also like to adopt this approach by engaging citizens for our campaigns on Tree Plantation and Say No to Plastic. We would only be able to achieve positive results if we have a strong government- citizen partnership.” He further added, “If I would abbreviate QCC for me it would be, Quality, Care and Control. If all of us try to focus on quality, taking care of our surroundings and then controlling the situation; so I feel a very positive partnership between the government and the citizens.”
Expressing his views, Ali Asghar Jamali, CEO IMC, said, “As one of the leading companies in the country, we take our responsibilities regarding quality checks very seriously. One of our core pillars is to continuously improve our standards while adhering to the global qualitative benchmarks. It gives us immense pride to host our 26th QCC Annual Convention and we look forward to hosting it for many more years to come.” He added, “We would like to support the government and would like to pledge a workforce of 1,000 people for the cleanup drive. We have pledged to plant 1 million plants across the country, out of which we have already planted 150,000 plants and we ensure our full support to the government for the Tree Plantation campaign. ”
A total of 15 teams, including 10 from IMC, 2 from its network of vendors and 3 teams from the network of dealerships, presented their Kaizen efforts in improving quality within their respective business areas.
The coveted Gold Medal was won by the Quality Assurance and Quality Control Department, which will represent IMC at a Global Quality competition in Japan later this year. The ‘Jig Shop’ bagged the Bronze Medal whereas the Silver Medal was presented to the ‘Weld Shop.’ Product Development Commercial department won the non-manufacturing category, Atlas battery won the supplier category and Toyota Lyallpur Motors won the dealership category. Over 500 attendees convened at the event comprising IMC suppliers, dealerships, senior management from IMC and House of Habib (HoH). Eminent business personalities and distinguished officials from the automobile and engineering industry, educational institutions, and the government were also present at the event.
Owing to the increasing trend of selling national flags made of paper and plastic, people enthusiastically buy such flags with a sense of national pride to celebrate national days, but sadly we find these flags trampled upon the roads.
Indus Motor Company initiated a drive and collected fallen flags after Independence Day celebrations under “Clean Pakistan Drive” to pay respect to beloved country.
A large number of employees of IMC voluntarily participated in the drive and cruised through a fleet of five vehicles across the major arteries of Karachi city, that include Steel town, North Karachi, Super Highway, National Highway, Landhi, Korangi, Malir and Clifton. Volunteers picked up the flags and showed their respect and unity for the celebration of Independence Day.
“It is always good to celebrate our national day in exuberant way but we should not forget the dignity and respect which our national symbols like National Anthem and National Flag deserve. Clean Pakistan Drive shows IMC’s continued efforts and its commitment with our country that IMC will always be on the forefront in serving Pakistan in all times.” said IMC CEO Ali Asghar Jamali.
