"Responsible for" is an ownership position. You own that task that you are responsible for. Example: I am an Environmental Health Officer. I am responsible for carrying out measures for protecting public health. "Responsible to" is a submissive position. The direct object (that you are responsible to) holds you accountable for your task. Example: I am responsible to the Director for Environmental Health and Safety.
