result in benefits to the natural environment (for example, protection of indigenous fish or mitigation of environmental impacts by innovations in fishing technologies):


give effect to or advance a significant Government policy:


involve oversight of, or participation in, the overseas investment and any relevant overseas person by persons who are not overseas persons:


result in other consequential benefits to New Zealand.
