Responsibility and ethical behavior

I do not think responsibility and ethical behavior are the same thing. In my opinion, responsibility is a commitment and willingness to accept consequences. Ethical behavior is linked with the word "moral".

For example, a boy damages a table which belongs to the public property and he has the willingness to accept the punishment. I can say that the boy is responsible, but he does not behave in a moral way.
