As mentioned in the report, published on December 29, 2020:

“In the face of the long-term impact of the COVID-19 on the global economy, VeChain, together with DNV GL, jointly developed a blockchain-based risk self-evaluation platform named VeTrust. It combines DNV GL’s infection risk management methodology and track record to help businesses start managing COVID-19 risk factors, starting with small to mid-scale hotels in China.”
