I'm a little confused, environment variables are typically for configuring your back end rather than exposing anywhere else. Could you elaborate on what you're trying to achieve?

I don't remember exactly what I was trying to achieve, but an example I can think of is hitting endpoints in different dev environments. For example:
GET => dev.mydomain.com/myendpoint
GET => qa.mydomain.com/myendpoint
GET => mydomain.com/myendpoint

I would want to consume the same environment variables that my Microservices use, instead of creating a hardcoded copy in my JS code.

Hope it makes sense.
