Davos will be gone for another year. The conversations revolved around trade disputes, climate change and of course Brexit with its possible consequences. But most of the important questions remained unanswered.

No, this year's gathering of the World Economic Forum in Davos was not like any other, says DW's Manuela Kasper-Claridge. She's seen business leaders heeding the call for a radical shift toward sustainability.
