It's a standard ANSI C function as defined in ISO 9899-1999:
188.8.131.52 The getenv function
1 #include <stdlib.h>
char *getenv(const char *name);
2 The getenv function searches an environment list, provided by
the host environment, for a string that matches the string
pointed to by name. The set of environment names and the
method for altering the environment list are
3 The implementation shall behave as if no library function calls
the getenv function.
4 The getenv function returns a pointer to a string associated
with the matched list member. The string pointed to shall

subsequent call to the getenv function. If the specified
name cannot be found, a null pointer is returned.
