setenv is a csh/tcsh builtin to display or set environment variables.

When issued without parameters it displays the current settings, so the simplest way to suppress this command's output is obviously not issuing it.

Anyway, as usual

setenv >/dev/null

will discard the output of setenv, just as it does with the standard output of any other command.

By the way, when setting a variable with

setenv variable value

there will be no output at all.
