Mr Davies was chairman of the committee between 2001 and 2012.
Council leader David Phillips also praised the former chairman's work for the local authority, saying his retirement was regrettable, but understandable.
He said: "He was on a committee which dealt with more than just councillors' behaviour, it became a resource for many and a beacon for Swansea, leading the field.
"Mr Davies was very interested in receiving submissions from members as to how we felt things could be improved.
"The only thing I ask is that we continue his success."
