the env command is the present variables of your shell.  Some change depending on what you are currently doing such as the "PWD" variable which reports your present working directory and will change depending on what directory you are currently working it.  Most of these variables are changed by the /home/user/.profile, some can not be changed without configuration changes such as the "LOGNAME" which displays who you are currently logged in as.

Is there a specific setting you are looking to add/delete/modify?
