The "env" directive controls which environment variables will be
available in the nginx worker processes. Environment variables
apply to the whole worker process, and are not differentiated based on
what the worker process is doing in the particular time. As such,
these directives are to be specified at the global level.

Sorry, from your description it is not clear what you are trying
to do and how the "env" directive can help here. You may want to
elaborate on this.
