Enhanced your integrity? What exactly does that mean? Code for "we took bribes before, but now we will no longer do it"?

Easy:

Enhance our integrity

means translation done by a non-native or someone whose English isn’t very fluent. Lack of natural collocation use = poor translation skills.

It seems that the Japanese source term was 人間力の向上 (literally, "enhancement of human-power"). I'd definitely avoid such a direct translation, but "enhance our integrity" is clearly wide of the mark.

日本スポーツ界、並びにJOCへの信頼は大きく揺らいでいる。真剣に取り組んでいく必要がある。人間力の向上が信頼回復に不可欠
