Probity is firmly grounded on and aligned with ethics. Ethical conduct entails aligning values and morals, acting with integrity and ensuring responsible behaviour and accountability. Ethical conduct is paramount to maintain trust and reputation and ensure efficiency and appropriate use of resources.
